UK  NATIONAL GRID ELECTRICITY STATISTICS

THE UK IS TRYING TO CHANGE ELECTRICITY PRODUCTION TO PREDOMINATELY RENEWABLE ENERGY - MAINLY BY WIND TURBINES - both On-Shore and Off-Shore. This is causing many people physical and Mental problems, however the amount of electricity produced by wind can be very small. This page will show some of the production statistics.

UK Electric Generation January 2013 (Monthly Average)

As seen from the Table, the average Electricity Demand in January was 42 GW, with 18.4 GW being provided by coal, and only 2.3GW by Wind. The amount produced by the various types of generator varies considerably. The lowest amount provided by Wind was 0.19GW, and the highest 5GW. On a Percentage Basis, wind produce <1 GW for 21% of the time, 70% of the time was <3 GW and 100% of the time was less than 5% of production.
