MEETS THE COUNTRY'S GROWTH IN ELECTRICITY CONSUMPTION

Over the last two years Denmark's 3500 wind turbines have produced enough power to meet the country's growth in electricity consumption. Wind plant now meet 3.4% of all Denmark's electricity demand. Consumption of power has increased 1.7% a year over the past two years, despite campaigns to save electricity. Total wind power generation in 1993 was 1,028 GWh, or 1,020 million kWh, according to the Danish utility association, DEF. Just 2.1% of this was consumed by individual owners of wind turbines, with excess power being sold to the grid. The association also says that 98% of all wind power is fed into the grid, with only 2% used directly by owners of wind turbines without use of transmission lines.
