Report: Renewables generated more power than fossil fuels in UK for first quarter ever

This The Hill article discusses how renewables generated more power than fossil fuels in UK for first quarter ever.

Electricity generated from wind, solar and hydroelectric plants beat out traditional fossil fuel plants as the top source of power for the United Kingdom during a three-month period for the first time, according to an analysis released Monday.

Between July, August and September, renewable energy sources generated about 29.5 terawatt hours compared to just 29.1 terawatt hours generated from fossil fuel sources, according to an analysis by U.K.-based climate news site Carbon Brief.

The results showed that the three summer months were the first quarter where renewable power generation outpaced fossil fuel power in the United Kingdom since the country opened its first public electric power station in 1882.
