True point Garibaldi.
There are those who scoff 'poverty, what poverty' when they compare with the less developed world. Yet in those places people are not tied to big corporations in order to get basic heat and light. The poor in he 3rd world do not need to pay half their income to a multinational fuel duopoloy simply in order to cook their dinner.
Yes, returning control of fuel to the people - even if only to offset the excessive exploitation that has flowed from privatisation - or all the way through to people being free to exploit their own resources would be worth supporting.
Mind you, FiTs are hardly such a device, as they are tapered to maximise the benefit to those with greater personal resources.
Perhaps the middle ground would be local energy producing cooperatives freeing their communities from exploitative control of privatised power - although who would those communities sell their generated power to?
