Interesting idea. But the story itself leaves one wondering. If the earlier ban was enacted to "protect" utility companies, what has changed? Does the government not care if they go bust? Will the utility companies have a part in this? Do they not have lobbyists in the UK?

While this story is newsworthy and well-written, I would like to see a more localized angle... quotes from these town halls, and background information about the financial situations of each town hall. Also, the financial viability of different forms of energy generation.

This story was very factual and well-written, but it left a lot of questions unanswered. It assumes a given level of knowledge and doesn't go too in depth on the issue. What is the upfront cost and what do the energy companies think of this? Any opposition?

There aren't many sources and it's not very well explained. The average person would have trouble understanding the content of the story.

Yes because it is well written, well sourced and unbiased. One thing that could be added to the story is a comment from Ofgem, the gas and energy generator.

There was no dissent in this article or apposing view points. It was a little bit confusing and could have used a better explanation of the environmental relevance. It didn't explain the story very well and add enough context.
