UK wind energy breaks new record to power more than 6.5m homes

Share

Wind energy generated a new record monthly high of 11% of the UK’s electricity in February, producing 2,750,086MWh – enough to power more than six and a half million homes.

Official National Grid figures show that wind is playing an increasingly important role in our electricity mix – the previous monthly record (10% of the UK’s electricity from wind) was set in December, which broke a record set in October.

A number of other records have been set in the strong winds of the past few months: on 31st January, wind generated an all-time half-hour high of 6,215MW (megawatts), and on 23rd February wind supplied a daily record of 17% of UK electricity demand.
