Some of you may not have read this, but it is relevant to the report in today's Times that the National Grid stepped in 24 hours later with proposals which could double or even treble the cost of putting power in the grid.
That action would, of course, make many renewable projects uneconomic.
A spokesman for the First Minister said: "The idea that connection charges should increase in the north of Scotland is totally ridiculous and flies in the face of the need to remove gross discrimination that already exists through locational charging."
On yesterday's post there were some interesting comments from those who have more knowledge of this subject than me and I appreciated learning more detail.
The fact is that the north of Scotland is subsidising the electricity prices of parts of England. That should not exist if we were a true 'union'. All of us would be equal if we were a true 'union'.
