Original article here. For the first time, a third of the electricity generated in Spain is renewable. A total of 21.2% of the total at the end of november came from wind, which is a full 37% increase over November of last year, and along with other renewable sources of energy that makes up 33% of the total. More nuclear energy is a good thing of course especially when compared to oil and coal (and its development is important for deep space missions) and energy independence needs to be tackled using more than just one technique, but wind and solar power is even better on the ground if it can be done.
