Onshore wind has the potential to become de facto subsidy-free in the UK. New wind farms can deliver energy that is just as cheap as new gas power plants and energy which is half the price of the electrons in the Hinkley Point C nuclear power plant, concludes a report undertaken by Arup commissioned by ScottishPower Renewables.
Arup argues that onshore wind could be produced at GBP 50-55 / Mwh. Should electricity price projections last, British consumers will not end up paying extra for their electricity relative to the cheapest alternatives.
