Britain records greenest day ever over easter
On Easter Monday, the UK’s electricity came from nearly 80% renewable energy.
This is the highest on record so far. It is important because the UK has pledged that all our energy will be produced this way by 2030.
The weather was windy and sunny and so 60% came from wind energy and solar energy and 20% came from nuclear power.
When electricity is made this way, it reduces the amount of pollution from burning carbon heavy fuels such as coal and oil. This keeps our planet healthier and safer for us all to live on.
This record should be broken more and more often as we use more lower polluting electricity in the future.
Talking point: What other ways are there to reduce air pollution?
