October a bumper month for Scottish renewables 7th November


Newly published figures reveal October was a groundbreaking month for renewables in Scotland.

Research compiled by WWF Scotland found that in October wind turbines generated enough electricity to power 3,045,000 homes in the UK. Wind power generated 982,842 MWh of electricity, 126% of the electricity needs of every home in Scotland.

Solar energy also made a significant contribution; supplying 46% of the electricity needs of an average home in Edinburgh, 38% in Inverness, 37% in Glasgow and 33% in Aberdeen. 

In addition, properties with solar thermal panels generated enough energy to meet approximately 41% of the hot water needs of an average home in Edinburgh, 31% in Inverness, 30% in Glasgow, and 27% in Aberdeen.
