Wind turbines ‘provided double the amount of energy needed for homes in October’

Strong winds and storms during October helped turbines produce more than 1.7 million megawatt hours (MWh) of electricity to the National Grid.

Analysis by WWF Scotland of data provided by WeatherEnergy found that wind power provided electricity to 4.5 million homes, the equivalent of nearly twice the number of households in Scotland.

Wind power provided more than 100% of electricity demand for Scotland on 15 days during October and supplied enough electricity to power all of Scotland’s homes on 28 days.
