Is renewable energy in Devon ‘an unmitigated disaster’? | NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

By Paul Homewood   Congrats to Philip Bratby, who has had a report published by the Campaign to Protect Rural England (CPRE) into renewable energy in his local county, Devon.


In the report, published on CPRE Devon’s website, it states: “The renewable energy industry has been entirely dependent on subsidies for its growth and its survival.

“The generation of energy from ineffective and inefficient renewable sources has created subsidised employment and has thus led to a huge reduction in productivity. Wealth has been destroyed on a massive scale.

“There is no evidence that the deployment of renewable energy has led to any reduction in carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions; on the contrary, it is possible that overall, emissions have increased.

“The deployment of renewable energy technologies has resulted in a detrimental impact on the landscape, on tranquillity, on heritage aspects, on residential amenity, on property values, on tourism, on local businesses, on agricultural land and on grid reliability and security of supply.”
