Wind power is winning!

According to researchers, wind turbines produced double the amount of electricity required to power the whole of Scotland. WWF Scotland have released findings from their analysis of data provided by Weather Energy. They found that on 2 October, 86,467MWh was provided to the national grid by wind turbines, which is more than double the country’s total daily electricity needs. Scotland’s total electricity consumption – including homes, industry, and business – on that day was 41,866MWh, meaning that wind energy produced 206% of the country’s needs.
