Prince Charles will officially open Scotland’s biggest offshore wind farm later Monday.


The fourth largest wind farm on the planet, Beatrice Offshore Wind Farm is located 13 kilometers (8.1 miles) off the Caithness coast in the north of Scotland.

It has 84 turbines and will produce enough renewable energy to power 450,000 homes annually, according to energy firm SSE.

SSE has a 40% share of the Beatrice project. Copenhagen Infrastructure Partners and Red Rock Power Limited have shares of 35% and 25% respectively.

By 2030, the Scottish government says it wants to produce half of the country’s energy consumption from renewables. It is also targeting an “almost completely” decarbonized energy system by 2050.

3. No, this one's further north

See the map here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_offshore_wind_farms_in_the_United_Kingdom

Beatrice is the northernmost dot; the one Trump moans about is the prosaically named European Offshore Wind Deployment Centre, 3rd one down, right on the coast.

Maybe next time.
