Eco-homes DOUBLED our energy bills: Resident rocked by £1,600 charge after just six months | Mail Online
Residents at the eco-friendly complex were promised cheaper electricity bills
But many tenants have found their bills are double the annual average
Investigation has been launched as council promises reimbursements
Warning Signs: A Cabinet of Dunces
Among those leaving his cabinet is Dr. Steven Chu, who actually wanted the price of a gallon of gasoline to rise to those in Europe in order to curb American’s desire to hop in the car for any reason. He will be best remembered for having swiftly ushered a $528 million loan to Solyndra, a solar panel manufacturer whose company just as swiftly went bankrupt, sticking the taxpayers with the loss. Other similar “investments” also failed. Ignoring America’s vast reserves of coal, natural gas and oil—enough to make the nation energy independent—Chu favored the expansion of solar and wind energy, lavishing millions on its producers even though it provides barely three percent of the electricity Americans use to function.
