Winter storm helps Sweden smash wind record
“The extremely windy weather in the past few days meant that wind power produced almost as much as six nuclear power plants. Never before has Swedish wind power produced that much.”
– Anders Engqvist, head of risk management for utility Bixia, in a statement regarding winter storms that helped Sweden smash the previous wind power record by more than a half million kilowatt-hours, enough to account for 26 percent of the country’s total energy consumption.
