The latest government initiative in their campaign to redistribute wealth from the poor to the rich implement green energy measures is battery farms.
Landowners are being offered up to £50,000 per acre per year to have containers full of batteries sitting on their land. The current agricultural rent is about £120 per acre per year.

The best tax may be the tax that other people pay, but it's even better when they don't know that they are paying it.
