Good to see that, due to the efficiency of all these nice wind-farm builders, and the £1 billion a year Scotland subsidises them by, it will be possible to cut the price from 9p to 8p a kilowatt hour (your report, 22 October).
Compare this with nasty French nuclear power, whose price is staying at 1.3p per kwh.
The previous article said "Under the £30 million Offshore Wind Accelerator (OWA) scheme, designed by the Carbon Trust, the cost of transforming wind into usable energy should be reduced by 10 per cent.
The savings would mean the cost of every kilowatt hour of electricity produced by offshore wind farms would drop from 9p to 8p."
