Domestic energy users in need of cheap electricity might be pleased to hear that an onshore wind farm in Scotland has started producing energy for the national grid.
Scottish and Southern Energy's South Lanarkshire facility is expected to be completed next year and its first turbine is already operational.
Colin Hood, chief operating officer at the energy supplier, commented: "Clyde is an important project for SSE and for the achievement of wider renewable energy targets and first generation of electricity from the wind farm is a key milestone."
He noted that the initial generation at Clyde follows the company's first production of green electricity at the 156MW wind farm in Griffin last month.
"Reaching these milestones illustrates again the increasing momentum in delivery of SSE's large capital projects," Mr Hood explained, adding that this is momentum "we're committed to maintaining".
Meanwhile, British Gas parent company Centrica has decided to close its gas field in Morecambe Bay due to revised tax obligations.
