High winds last Sunday boosted wind energy generation in Scotland to match the country’s energy usage for that day, and then some. On an average day, Scotland generates nearly 60 percent of its electricity from renewable sources, but an especially windy day made for a record-setting output of energy from wind turbines. On Aug. 7, Scotland’s wind turbines produced 106 percent of the electricity used nationwide on that day.
