    Scotland is about 1/3rd of the area of the UK so Scotland produces about one third of the UK’s wind farm energy.

    If and when renewable energy farms produce all the UK’s energy then expect Scotland to be exporting to the rest of the UK about 24%, three times more wind farm energy than Scots consume (8%), which will mean that Scotland will be keeping the lights on for about 16 million of our English neighbours.
