Energy comparison users in the north-east could be contributing to a rise in renewable energy production.
According to the Northern Echo, the region is set to generate 37 per cent of the energy it uses from green sources, against a national average of ten per cent.
Data from the Department of Energy and Climate Change reveals that the north-east has almost reached the country's target for 2050 already.
Former business analyst Bill Short, who calculated the figures, told the newspaper it is "blatantly unfair" that some areas are generating significantly more cheap energy from wind farms than others.
"I was going through the figures and I realised there was a big disparity," he explained.
"It's supposed to be far more balanced throughout England - but it's not."
Mr Short also found that the north-east has cut its cheap electricity usage more than any other region in Britain.
Meanwhile, proposals for two north-east carbon capture power stations have been put forward.
