Power station sell off as Centrica faces gloomy forecast
After a mild-ish winter, and general haemorrhaging of customers, they've also put its three biggest gas-fired power stations up for sale.
The warmer weather meant that gas usage was down by a quarter, because there was no need really.
Also, they've lost 180,000 customers so far this year. Add that to the 400,000 who fled last year after David Cameron said to boycott it, then it's a bit awkward.
People actually doing something David Cameron has suggested? This was quite an adjustment.
As for the power stations, Langage, Humber and Killingholme provide more than half of Centrica’s power generation in this UK. Centrica are asking £500m for them, but insist that they would keep them running at a loss if no buyer came forward.
Perhaps we could all club together and help them out. Maybe turn it into a groovin' commune and become like Can or something?
