One marvel of moonbat technology is that by living in a green home, Brits can double their energy bills:
They were described as the ‘homes of the future’, with an eco-friendly design that would keep bills low.
The 45 super-insulated houses, built with £5.6million [almost $9 million] of public money, were even held up as a ‘model’ of environmentally-friendly construction.
But 18 months after the social housing complex in Bradford was completed, residents have complained of bills that are double what is normal and faulty equipment that was supposed to save them money.
Resident Danny Hall’s experience appears to be typical:
‘We weren’t really told what expected bills would be but with solar panels, heat exhaust and all this fancy stuff you would expect it to be considerably lower than what we used to pay.’
Instead the family received a £1,600 [over $2,500!] bill after six months.
Energy bills were almost double what they paid at their previous home, he said.
When the family moved in, there was no water in the toilets because the water recycling system had not been activated.
When it was turned on, water ‘poured through the light fittings’.
If Moe, Larry, and Curly didn’t build the house, it must have been Big Government.
In addition to solar panels and an “eco-heat exhaust pump” to reuse stale air, the houses feature rainwater-harvesting systems and a “communal biomass boiler.” At least if B.S. counts as biomass, greenies will never encounter a fuel shortage.
One day, after sufficiently powerful computers have been developed, someone will calculate just how much money has been wasted on green energy idiocy.
