Scotland’s wind turbines provide enough energy for 189% of Scottish homes on nearly every day in October. It was much the same in May.

According to WWF Scotland and reported in Energy Voice, Scotland’s wind turbines provided enough electricity to:

  • Power 189% of Scotland’s homes on 28 days in October
  • Provide over 100% of total electricity demand on 15 days
  • Provided 1 727 602 MWh or 99% of Scotland’s entire demand for the month

This is almost a repeat of the news for May:

All of Scotland could have been renewables-powered in May

Remember massive new offshore windfarms and marine turbine fields are not yet on stream. 100% reliability by 2020 is looking quite a safe bet. See, this for details:

By 2030 when Scotland should be able to power all its homes and industry with renewables energy, all of the fossil-fuel job losses could be replaced there.

And don’t worry about the loss of EU subsidies because:

Scotland’s renewables trend is too strong to be held back by political barriers and challenging market conditions suggesting 100% renewables by 2030 is a real possibility.

Footnote: Re the Panda above, I know we have more Tory MPs than pandas now but how many of them have moral standards anywhere near those of the pandas? FA?

Everything reminds me of a song so to finish of with a musical fade out:

    If tonight’s anything to go by, our Wind Turbines will generate more Lecky this month than last. . . . With a big of luck the gales will blow some Tory MP’s far away from our shores.

        Lets fill our coastal waters with floating wind farms–built here if possible. Battery storage: conversion to a hydrogen economy in remote areas: instead of “power from the glens” lets make it “power from the seas”!
        If we can somehow survive global warming, humanity will have conflicts about land, food, water, energy—Scotland has it ALL, and with a temperate climate thrown in free.

      A tin opener works for me.
      You dont want to be walking underneath when the cans fall off the tree, however.
