By Paul Homewood
From the “News you won’t see on the BBC” department.
According to the BM Report data, coal power contributed 16% to the UK’s electricity generation last month, compared to just 9% from wind.
CCGT supplied the bulk, with 45%. Altogether, the conventional sources of coal, gas and nuclear still continue to provide the lion’s share, totalling 80%.
Solar power is estimated to have produced about 1%.
Prince Charles says that we should all switch to renewable energy now.
