Record-Breaking Wind 💨 Power Output  ⚡ in Scotland Sufficient for 5 Million Homes

By LORRAINE CHOW OF ECOWATCH ON BUZZFLASH AT TRUTHOUT

SNIPPET:

Scotland, which is fast on track to get 100 percent of its electricity via renewable energy by 2020    , has broken another wind power record.

The country's onshore wind turbines provided more than 5.3 million megawatt hours of electricity to the National Grid during the first three months of 2018, an impressive 44 percent increase compared to the same period last year, according to an analysis of WWF Scotland wind power data by WeatherEnergy.

Over that first quarter, enough wind power was generated to supply the equivalent of five million homes with low-carbon electricity. The best day was on March 1, when 110,000 megawatt-hours of wind power could have supplied 173 percent of the nation's entire electricity demand.

Last year, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced plans to end the sale of new gas and diesel-powered cars by 2032, eight years ahead of the UK government target  ;D. And unlike England, fracking was permanently banned in Scotland last year and has technically been under halt since 2015.
