U.K. wind farms generated a record amount of electricity in December as well as hitting weekly and daily highs after installed capacity rose 45 percent in a year, a lobby group said.

Wind turbines generated a total of 2,841,080 megawatt-hours over the 31-day period, enough to power more than 5.7 million U.K. homes, RenewableUK said today in an e-mailed statement. Daily generation rose to as high as 17 percent of the national total on Dec. 21, the group said.
