Enough Scottish renewable electricity in 2012 to power all homes.

Guardian: “2012 was a record year for renewable energy in Scotland, which produced enough electricity to power all of its homes.” “Fergus Ewing, the Scottish energy minister, said his government was now on track to meet its target of generating the equivalent of 50% of Scotland’s own electricity needs by 2015 and 100% by 2020. …In Scotland, renewable energy output has continued to grow markedly, hitting a new record of 14,600Gwh in 2012, up by 7% on the previous year. Windfarm output was four times greater than in 2006. Scottish wind and hydro schemes generated 35% of the UK’s total renewables output in 2012, and that – averaged out across the year – provided enough green electricity for every home in Scotland.”
