Are windfarms no longer answer to cutting Isle of Man’s carbon emissions?

The technical stuff is great and a good read, however no point whatsoever in debating what may or may not be a goer technically, the bottom line is the taxpayers have to use and pay for enough expensive energy (if they can) to finance the ludicrous debt the MEA got the island into. Always amazing what people knew and didn't know about that wasn't it !

In an ideal world (which it ain't in this instance), the next administration would reopen the inquiry into what went on in this debacle.

 

An appalling financial f'ck-up (to be funded by the taxpayer). An inquiry (funded by the taxpayer) commissioned and staffed by some of those who were party to the f'ck-up; who then voted to exonerate themselves from any wrong-doing, including failing to keep control of finances and the man whose antics caused the situation. You could not make it up.

 

The inquiry should be re-opened and a thorough audit performed. It should be staffed by impartial, independent persons, preferably from off-island and with no connections, masonic or otherwise to the parties under investigation. Downie, Fargher and Proffitt should be brought before it. Bell should be hauled out of his boyfriend's arse and brought back from Perth or wherever else he's decided to retire to as well.

 

If found to be guilty of financial malpractice Proffitt should be required to reimburse IoMG/the taxpayer, if necessary to the point of his own bankruptcy. Why the hell should the taxpayers of this island carry the can for generations to come whilst these tossers walk off scott-free? With generous Public Purse Pensions to suit in most cases.

The island could cope with small amounts of private generation, but a commercial size wind farm would bring too much instability - it would have to have conventional generation available to pick up it's load - it would be too high a percentage of running load. It could work if we generated, say, 250MW+ from wind and sold to the UK, but the economics of that could change overnight!

Where would you put the green energy ? And IOM emissions are negligible.

Companies with sustainable policies are looking for green energy. The IOM branch of M and S buys it from the Sulby Hydro as does one of the server companies. But there is no green energy for other companies who would like to use it.

It will be interesting to see what happens after April 2016 when the UK stop all subsidies for onshore wind farms, Irishwasa is right in what he says, the IOM load is too small to cope with the instability wind farms cause, especially when the MUA are in Island mode, i.e Not connected to the UK Via a cable that has a capacity of 67 Mw.

LOL, which boyfriend?? the snag is everybody involved knows where the skeletons are and they all have skeletons themselves ( perhaps even paperwork too??? ) so no one is willing to topple the house of cards because it is suicide for themselves.

I think that comment is disgraceful and does neither you, or the forums any favours at all.

What do you gain by including those words in your post?

Apparently, you need to toughen up sweetheart if you are going last long on the internet. Or so I am told.

For lifetimes to come, we are now committed go paying off the debt for the gas-fired power station (and its inordinately expensive gas contract).

 

There is no finance available from current revenues for alternatives. Those revenues don't even cover the debt repayments at the moment. Such is the situation that, draconian as it is, MUA cannot afford to even allow customers to generate their own electricity. It is most unlikely that any money exists to either research or allow the installation/combination of any other generation methods, even though they may well be cleaner and greener. It would be laudable if we could - but those who knew best or failed to do due diligence have consigned us to otherwise.

 

We are locked into our debt-ridden gas-fired power station method of generation for many, many years to come. Ripped off by Proffitt and let down by politicians.

Yes but we paid over a million for an enquiry to confirm Proffitt and Co did nothing wrong.

 

Fucking disgrace and that charlatan has got away with it. Must be the biggest scandal ever.
