In typical British fashion I complain about the weather too much. But when I read that recent high winds gave wind power the edge over nuclear I jumped for joy.
On Tuesday, stormy weather set our wind turbines spinning so much that 14.2% of all UK energy was generated from them. In the same period nuclear power only generated 13.2% of our power - although that's partly because several reactors are off line for maintenance.
Still, I hope this shows those who doubt wind power that it can be a great alternative.
