Scotland achieved a “huge year” for wind power with the sector up 16% and generating a total of 10,392,439 megawatt-hours of electricity, enough to meet around 97% of domestic demand in the country.
WWF Scotland figures based on data from WeatherEnergy showed that December wind output was up by 6% year on year and that turbines out-produced household needs on 29 of the month’s 31 days.
Wind met 41% of Scotland’s entire electricity needs for the year, added the wildlife charity.
I might actually believe that wind produced electricity equal to 41% of Scotland’s demand over the year. But given intermitentcy I’m very much less certain that it actually provided 41%.
