" 'Leccy price hike: Greens to blame as well as energy biz. Who's paying for your neighbour's solar panels? You are"
Article by Lewis Page on The Register.
Here's a quote:
"In essence the ROC scheme is a hidden tax on electricity which is used to subsidise renewables. But a flat tax like that - one which hits poorer people, to whom the electricity bill is a noticeable expense, disproportionately hard - would be politically difficult to implement, so the way it is kept off the government's books is particularly cunning."
