Britain's windfarms broke a new record on Friday 14th September 2012 by providing over four gigawatts of power to the National Grid – enough to light and heat more than 3m British homes.


It beats a previous high of 3.8GW set in May and comes as a further 4GW of wind turbines are being installed, half on land and half offshore.

 

Just before 10am, wind turbines were supplying 10.8% of the total amount of electricity going into the grid while an additional 2.2GW of "green" power was going directly into local electricity networks.
