Stringent European Union environmental regulations are forcing the shut down of power plants in Great Britain.
According to the Daily Telegraph of London, "Two more power plants are due to close by next winter under EU anti-pollution rules, making the UK even more vulnerable to blackouts if there are further incidents such as the Didcot fire."
EU directives are sparking higher electric bills for British consumers.
As reported by the Telegraph, "Littlebrook oil plant in Kent is due to shut in March, while the remaining part of a former coal-fired Ironbridge plant in Shropshire will also be forced to close next year - despite having converted to burn “greener” biomass wood pellets."
Great Britain stands on the brink of an energy crunch.
