The Cornish Guardian on 21st June 2017 ran a letter saying that we were being brainwashed into thinking electric cars were the future, and that EVs were not for ordinary people, focussing mainly on the charging issue. I sent a response to the paper, which wasn’t published, and this blog post is an extended version of that letter.

This blog post aims to provide objective facts in response to frequent claims made by anti-wind campaigners.

The headline on a Western Morning News front page on 17th April 2015 read: ‘Save energy and save the countryside’ plea.

WREN directors Stephen Frankel and Kevin Smith attended the Cornwall Energy Island conference at the Eden Project in March 2015. The one and a half day event attracted people from around Cornwall and beyond to discuss the question: “What would it take to make Cornwall self-sufficient in energy?”
