Scottish green targets put at risk by proposed wind farm legislation

March 2014


Four of the ‘Big Six’ utility suppliers have warned Alex Salmond that Scotland’s green targets will be jeopardised if he presses ahead with proposed wind farm planning changes. The Scottish First Minister, typically known as a supporter of onshore wind farm development, is considering introducing a ‘wild land’ designation for 43 areas, which would make it difficult for wind turbines to be constructed. EDF Energy, Eon Energy, Scottish Power & SSE have all warned that this would severely damage the ambitious goal of generating all of Scotland’s electricity from renewable sources by 2020.

Clifford Talbot recently began managing a new water account, set up following a property purchase by one of our clients. The water supplier opened the account from a very low estimated meter read, as no actual reads were available. CTP arranged for the supplier to revise the opening read to an improved estimate, resulting in an immediate saving of £4,729, with an additional saving of £652 due to the removal of VAT charges. As CTP work on a fixed fee basis, and not shared savings or commission, all of this saving went directly to the client.
