Peak Wind Power in UK Rises to Over 4,000 MW
Peak wind power recently hit 4,010 MW in the UK. (The previous record of 3.8 GW was set in May 2012.) This was a record for electricity generated by UK wind turbines. At that level, wind power was generating about 10-11% of the UK’s electricity. Renewable Energy UK said the peak level was enough to power about 3 million British homes.
