    In an analysis of wind power data provided by WeatherEnergy, the World Wildlife Fund found that onshore wind turbines in the country provided more than 5 million megawatt hours of electricity to the National Grid during the first three months of this year – a 44 percent increase over this time last year.

    The good news doesn’t stop there. The analysis comes after data released at the end of last month showed renewable electricity generation in Scotland grew by 26 percent last year, for a total of 68 percent of the nation’s overall electricity demand coming from renewables. Wind generation went up by 34 percent and hydro by 9 percent in 2017.

    March 1 was the country’s best day of generation, when 110,149 MWh was enough to power more than 9 million homes (374 percent of Scottish households). Total demand for that day was less than half of that.
