Cue hysterical tears across the greenie consituency, plus a large slice of the Welsh populace that had swallowed this inane concept. Well now: all that's happened is that the government won't mandate electricity users to pay for it. So perhaps someone else will.

No, I didn't mock that up, it's a genuine Just Giving page. Misguided charitable gestures aside, there are quite a few mainstream punters who are already set to lose out on this one: the project has burned through tens of millions. It was always highly speculative. Mercifully it was an investment "suitable only for experienced investors" so there won't be many widows & orphans hurt in the crash. Ironic, really, because the PR man running the whole show (the latest in his very eclectic run of odd entrepreneurial ventures, starting with film schemes) tried to get a bandwagon rolling, disingenuously called "Ours to Own". As if somehow it belonged to the Welsh people. Read their stuff and cringe.
