Wind Farms In England Only Supply 2% Of Power

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?
