Paying for wind power scam

THE 5pc levy on electricity puts the tin hat on the greatest scam of the last 50 years -- wind power.
We we are already committed to paying billions of euro to the wind moguls and this new levy puts another €150m per annum in their pockets.
One could reluctantly accept these costs if there was any chance of getting green renewable energy as promised. Unfortunately, wind turbines produce very little energy (only 25pc to 30pc of rated capacity) and most of that simply goes to waste because wind seldom blows when needed (see www.eirgrid.com).
