Scotland was first Industrialized Country to Run wholly on Wind in October

Ann Arbor (Informed Comment) – Scotland generated enough wind power from onshore wind turbines in October to fuel electricity for five million homes, that is, virtually the entire country. By the end of 2017, renewable energy generated nearly 70% of Scotland’s electricity. That percentage continued to grow this year, led by wind projects. The next big thing in Scotland is likely to be offshore wind, which is less than one percent of generation now Wind is so obviously the future that the utility Scottish Power has sold its gas plants and will concentrate entirely on wind.
