IOW Energy & Food Self Sufficent by 2020

From BBC Hampshire

Isle of Wight to be energy self-sufficient by 2020

Islanders would have "smart meters" which showed exactly how much fuel they were using

An Isle of Wight community group says it is aiming to make the island the UK's first energy self-sufficient and carbon neutral region by 2020. 

The island, which is 23-miles long and 13-miles wide, annually draws 600GWh of electricity per year from the mainland.

The group Eco Island said power for the population of 142,500 could come from a waste to energy plant, solar panels and tidal and geothermal power.
