It's all part of dumbing down a population into ever increasing subservience to the rule of law. Helmets; seat belts; speed humps; 20 limits; cameras etc. Energy will be rationed and taxed heavily, despite there being alternatives which are free - can't have that - no profit. Build wind farms instead, the most expensive form of electricity production - which fails when needed most during Winter. Like bars of chocolate - downsize and up the price. Restrict and charge.
Ooops - there I go ranting again . . .
