Scotland’s wind energy contributing to mother nature should be brought to attention. The wind turbines in Scotland generated almost twice the entire country’s domestic power requirements in the first six months of the year. Scotland’s wind energy revolution is clearly continuing to boost up and down the country, as all are benefitting from cleaner energy.
Enough energy was created by the country’s renewables to power homes from all the way up in Harris in the Outer Hebrides down to Harrogate in Yorkshire, World Wildlife Fund (WWF)
The figures showed that between January and June wind turbines provided enough electricity to power the equivalent of 4.47million homes for those six months. That is near twice the number of homes in Scotland
Scotland’s wind energy can provide green energy to millions of homes in Scotland as well as the rest of Europe. Scotland’s wind energy plays a major part in the UK’s energy market and it is time for the government to give the wind energy a route into the market.
Scottish Power became the first major UK energy firm to completely drop fossil fuels in favor of wind power. Last year it emerged that two-thirds of British people think the UK government should ditch the policies that have all but killed off the UK’s onshore wind industry.
Since the rules governing the construction of onshore turbines were introduced following the election in 2015, planning applications for new wind farms plummeted by 94 percent.
As a result, the new government helped Scotland to flourish its wind energy.
