U.K. Risks Brownout Without Power From Scotland

Scottish First Minister Alex Salmond said England would risk power brownouts without supplies from his region.

“We export a substantial amount of electricity to England and will continue to do so,” Salmond said at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance conference in New York today. “If we didn’t, that 2 percent capacity margin would be minus 2 percent. So you would have brownouts.”
