The author comments on the consultation document launched by the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) of Great Britain governing green tariffs. According to the author, associating green tariffs with renewable energy resources is incorrect. He opines that the proposals lack transparency and that green tariffs will not be able to make a meaningful contribution towards increasing renewable energy supply in Great Britain if Ofgem's guidelines progress.
