Scottish offshore wind farms take 5GW step forward

New lease agreements could lead to a whopping 5GW increase in wind power off Scotland, which is a serious amount of power indeed, probably enough for 2-3 million Scottish homes.

Meanwhile our own country, champion of renewable energy that it is, has precisely zero offshore wind farms. Now that Cape Wind has been harpooned, the first offshore wind will probably be in Texas, a state that truly gets it about power.
