Experts have hailed the “incredible amount” of power produced by Scotland’s onshore wind turbines in the first quarter of 2018, which is up 44% on the first three months of last year. Onshore wind generated 5,353,997MWh between January and March 2018, providing enough electricity to power the equivalent of around five million homes. The best day was 1 March when generation was 110,149MWh, enough to power 9,065,020 homes, which is the equivalent to 374% of Scottish households. Total demand on the grid that day was 63,807MWh, meaning that wind power could have supplied 173% of demand.
