SCOTTISH POWER!

Tidal electricity generator awaiting installation. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tidal_power

Scotland should become the richest country in the world, if it is independent.

The Sunday Times in Scotland,( Huge tidal power plan for Scotland - Times Online), 28 September 2008, tells us:

1. Enough TIDAL POWER could be generated off Scotland's north coast to produce 25 gigawatts of energy.

2. That is FOUR TIMES what Scotland uses at present.

3. Surplus power could be sold to England and Europe.

4. The Pentland Firth, between Scotland and Orkney, is a perfect site for what could be the world's biggest tidal energy 'farm'.

5. Scotland could produce 25% of Europe’s tidal power and 10% of its wave power.


Scotland has oil (at least half the oil is still to come) and it has wind and wave power.

And, more than 1000 new hydro-electric power stations may be built in Scotland in the next few years years according to Scottish Government advisers. ( Scotland may have a thousand more hydro sites)

Above Loch Ness, the £150m Glendoe hydro-electric scheme is nearing completion.

Scottish and Southern Energy's Glendoe project will be capable of generating 100mw of power, enough to power Glasgow.

Glendoe will be the second largest hydro scheme out of the 80 already in Scotland.

Most were built in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

The Scottish Government aims to generate 50% of its electricity from renewable sources by 2020.
