AN offshore wind farm is almost complete - and has further boosted the UK’s proud record for green energy.
A new study by financial analysts Ernst and Young has placed the UK at the top of the global list of countries in which to invest in offshore wind energy.
The UK currently has 3,321 megawatts of offshore wind energy installed which is more than the rest of the world put together.
That amount is sufficient to power the equivalent of more than two million homes.The positive news comes at a time when the wind farm off the coast of Hartlepool moved closer to completion.
Officials have confirmed that 25 out of 27 turbines have been completely installed on the Teesside Offshore Windfarm, with six operational.
