Over the last three months wind farms produced more electricity than any other power source in Spain.
Wind generation for January 2013 totaled 6.214 terawatt-hours, representing 27.7% of Spain's total power output, according to Red Electrica's website. That puts it ahead of nuclear and coal-fired electricity, the figures show.
Wind has accounted for more power than any other energy source for the last three months, a first for any quarter, the wind association said. Renewable energy, including solar and hydro power, accounted for 44.1% of all electricity generated during the quarter.
Renewable energy accounted for 33% of all electricity generated in Spain over the last 12 months.
