Households could be paying £800m more this winter due to onshore wind farm ban

“This analysis shows how banning onshore wind has left us more reliant on expensive gas this winter, exposing more families and businesses to the effects of Putin’s invasion of Ukraine,” said Simon Clarke, a Conservative MP pushing for the ban to be lifted.

“We shouldn’t go back to the old system of imposing wind farms on people but give communities a genuine say.

“Unlocking Britain’s wind potential, where communities agree, would cut everyone’s energy bills and allow local residents to benefit from rebates for hosting these cheap renewables.”
