Energy Light Bulbs Anyone?

The price of living on an Island? Here on Sark, the Sarkese are paying 58 pence per unit of electricity. The whole island is powered by diesel generator from the power station. The diesel comes in on the small island ferries and then it has to be carriedto  where its needed by tractor. If we lived here, we'd be doing a lot of sitting in the dark and an awful lot of driftwood collecting.

Maybe wind generator anyone or solar?

The crazy thing is that if we were all just a little more careful with our electricity (it is obviously possible to live using less) then environment would be so much better.
