Nana Akua has criticised reported plans for households to be given £1k off electricity bills in exchange for electricity pylons in their area.
In plans reportedly set to be announced by Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, the “eyesores” will also give locals extra cash for local projects including roads and GPs.
It comes as part of a drive from Hunt to woo locals over as the Government tries to carry out green plans.
GB News host Nana Akua is sceptical and believes it will only prove more costly in the long run.
Nana Akua hits out at Jeremy Hunt's plan
“This green energy is supposedly cheaper”, she said.
“It seems to be heavily based on being cheaper by using subsidies because ultimately the thousands of pounds to every household near the pylon is going to cost a fortune and actually comes out of the taxpayers’ pocket, right?

“Surely that’s the case for them to build these things. I’m not seeing this green drive. It’s not like a private company is going to come and build them without cost.”
Speaking to LBC was Matt Copeland, Head of Policy and Public Affairs at National Energy Action, who said the plans would be “unconscionable”.
"To give support based on geography, rather than need, would create a huge postcode lottery and leave millions of households cold at home this winter.
"Surely that is not a desirable outcome for any government."
It comes ahead of Hunt’s financial statement to MPs, with no new general energy help for bills expected.
The Chancellor is expected to look at ways to give businesses tax cuts in next week’s Autumn Statement.
Tory MPs calling for personal bills to be slashed may be left disappointed as a result.
New welfare reforms have already been set out by ministers, which include taking benefits off people who do not agree to taking up a job.
They could also be subject to being given mandatory work experience roles.
Inheritance tax, business taxes and possibly stamp duty cuts are all potentially on the cards.
