CITY VIEWS: ARE YOU CONCERNED ABOUT POWER SHORTAGES IN THE FUTURE?

“I’ve fixed my electricity bills for the next three years, but it all depends on what happens after that. Energy bills are going up every day, so who knows what will happen in five years’ time? As the consumers, I’m sure we’ll have to bear the brunt.”

“I guess it’s a case of forward planning. I don’t think we need more power stations, it’s the network that needs upgrading. I think the public perception is that we need to produce more power, but I’d be more worried about the network capacity.”

“I’ve got solar power, and I think that’s the direction in which we need to be going. There are so many new houses springing up in the UK that we need to invest in solar and renewable energy to be able to cope. That’s what I’ve got, so I’m not too worried.”
