Energy comparison customers might be interested to note that an energy firm has started generating wind power from two offshore farms.
Scottish and Southern Energy (SSE) has exported green electricity to the national grid with the Greater Gabbard offshore wind farm for the first time, according to Energy Business Review.
The energy supplier has also derived electricity from the Walney offshore wind farm, which is located in the Irish Sea and comprises two plants, each with a capacity of 183.6MW.
SSE chief executive Ian Marchant said at the time the first farm was being developed: "The UK wants to respond to climate change and become more self-sufficient in energy, so it makes sense to exploit the excellent resource that UK offshore wind represents.
"On completion, Greater Gabbard will be the largest offshore wind farm in the world and gives SSE the opportunity to build a significant share of the UK's offshore wind market and reinforce our position as the country's leading generator of electricity from renewable sources."
