WWF: Scotland’s wind power output could also supply the north of England

Scotland’s wind turbines, which produced enough electricity to power almost double the number of homes in Scotland between January and June 2019, could also supply electricity to the whole of the north of England, WWF announced on 15 July.

Scottish wind turbines produced enough electricity to power the equivalent 4.47mn homes for those six months, according generation figures provided by WeatherEnergy, which provides daily and weekly figures for renewable energy generation in the UK.

Alex Wilcox Brooke, Weather Energy Project Manager at Severn Wye Energy Agency said: “These figures really highlight the consistency of wind energy in Scotland and why it now plays a major part in the UK energy market.”
