Wind Farms In England Only Supply 2% Of Power

Bothel is referred to as being in Cumbria, which is correct as far as administration area’s is concerned.

NOT A LOT OF PEOPLE KNOW THAT

Wind turbines near the village of Bothel in Cumbria.

 

Anyone who lives in England knows just how ubiquitous wind farms now are across the countryside.

So it might come as a surprise to learn just how little power they actually produce.

The Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy has now published the detailed data for 2016. It shows that onshore wind farms in England produced only 5.7 TWh, out of a total generation in England of 241.8 TWh.

In other words, the princely amount of 2%.

Can anybody say it has been worth all of the bother?
