UPDATE 1-Storms produce record UK wind power output

LONDON, Jan 6 (Reuters) - British wind power production reached a record high just before the New Year as storms hit the British Isles and powered onshore and offshore wind turbines, data showed on Friday.


The storms earlier this week also more than doubled the average load factor -- the ratio of average output over maximum capacity over a period of time -- of wind turbines to up to 66 percent on Jan. 4, compared with an average of around 30 percent, Scottish Renewables figures showed on Friday.
