Conversion could mean Wisbech incinerator not needed
I recently read in the national press that the remaining conventional coal-fired power stations in the UK are no longer required to generate electricity as sufficient power is now available from renewable sources.
It occurs to me that they could be converted to waste incinerators to dispose of refuse and waste and to create electricity at the same time.
They are almost always located well away from centres of population and have in place the infrastructure for bulk handling of fuel as well as a connection to the national grid.
