The Griffin wind farm in Perthshire is powering the climate summit at the Scottish Event Campus in Glasgow.

SSE officials have claimed that all mains energy being used by delegates at the venue is 100% being generated by the turbines in Perthshire.

However, it has been revealed that the wind farm is creating too much energy because it’s too windy, meaning that the government are paying them to switch off the turbines.

Between the start of Cop26 on November 1 and November 7, the owners of Griffin wind farm were paid £519,778 to switch off.
