    “…[Wind energy provided more electricity than Scotland used on 23, 24, 25 and 26 December]…The total amount of wind energy produced on Christmas Eve was also the highest ever, with more than 74,000MWh sent to the National Grid – equivalent to the average daily electricity needs of 6.09 million homes…And, as energy use fell on Christmas Day, wind turbines provided 153 per cent of Scotland’s electricity needs…At times in Germany and other countries, renewable energy has produced so much power that electricity prices have turned negative, with customers paid to use it…The excess would have been sold through the National Grid to customers in the rest of the UK…[The low cost of renewables is also driving down the oil price, with a senior executive of the world’s largest private power production company saying it could get as low as $10 a barrel for this reason within 10 years]…” click here for more
