Scottish Power first of 'Big Six' to ditch fossil fuel power generation
by Will Roderick
What's Going On Here?
This week Scottish Power became the first of the big six energy companies to renounce its use of fossil fuels. After committing to sell its remaining gas power stations to Drax, Scottish Power will now generate 100% of its energy from wind power.
What Does This Mean?
The move is part of parent company Iberdrola’s wider ambition to become completely carbon neutral by 2050, and follows the closure of all Scottish Power’s coal-fired power stations within the last decade.
Scottish Power are also investing £5.2 billion in smart grid development and doubling its renewable energy capacity in the UK.
Why Should We Care?
It is also likely to drive down energy costs for consumers, as Scottish Power primarily focus on onshore wind power, which is now the cheapest form of new-build electricity generation!
