That of course is a personal view, unconnected with Radio Caroline.
We just invested in panels to reduce our power bill. The 45 panels cover our useage on a reasonable day and when we have our 12KW, we feed the rest to Cobra Mist. I have seen the panels making 22KW at times.
The ideal place for the panels would have we been the flat roof of the building, but a colony of rare birds got there first and are protected.
We are ' considering ' 15 more panels which will reach the capacity that the inverter can handle, providing another 6.5KW in good conditions.
Other AM operators could have chosen solar as most AM sites cover a big ground area, but they chose to quit.
I don't think that an endorsement from the Green Party will do much for us. Just wear the shirt and see if if gets any conversations started.
