Figures provided by Weather Energy show that in the first six months of 2019 turbines provided enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4.47 million homes. Scotland has around 2.46 million homes. WWF Scotland claims the energy produced was enough to power Scotland “and also the north of England”.
Robin Parker, Climate and Energy policy manager said: “These are amazing figures, Scotland’s wind energy revolution is clearly continuing to power ahead.
“Up and down the country, we are all benefitting from cleaner energy and so is the climate.
“These figures show harnessing Scotland’s plentiful onshore wind potential can provide clean green electricity for millions of homes across not only Scotland, but England as well.
“It’s about time the UK Government stepped up and gave Scottish onshore wind a route to market.”
