Starting today, UK will have the world’s biggest offshore wind farm of Thanet in Kent that will generate clean electricity for about 240,000 urban homes. If the wind farm runs at full capacity, it will be able to power half the county of Kent.
According to the government, this is the energy of the future and about 20% of the electricity will come from the wind during the next decade. The 1.2 billion pounds construction began a year ago and now is equipped with 100 giant wind turbines.
Britain has more offshore wind farms than any country and as the officials said, this farm is “relatively tiny” compared to what’s coming next.
