EDF Energy paid £3m to shut down Fallago Rig turbines
An energy firm has been paid almost £3m to shut down turbines on a wind farm because the National Grid did not want its electricity.
EDF Energy received £2.99m in six months to halt production at Fallago Rig wind farm in the Lammermuir Hills on land owned by the Duke of Roxburghe.
The "constraint payments" are given for not producing energy during periods of high generation or low demand.
