Scotland’s wind power generation up by a third



Scotland’s wind power output increased by more than a third in September compared to the same period last year.
New data from WeatherEnergy shows that wind turbines provided 766,116 MWh of electricity to the National Grid during the month, up 36% from 563,834 MWh in September 2015.
The output was enough to supply, on average, the electrical needs of 87% of Scottish households or 2.1 million homes.
Wind power generated the equivalent of 44% of Scotland’s entire electricity needs for the month when business and industry are included.
