The National Grid, has paid about £5 million wind farms throughout the country to temporarily shut them down.
The reason behind the move from the National Grid has to do with recent storms in the United Kingdom and the strong winds that these storms have produced.
Winter storms have brought powerful winds to the United Kingdom, which means that wind farms have been producing more electrical power than they usually would.
These wind farms have produces more energy than the National Grid can handle.
The problem, however, is that powerful storms left many people throughout the United Kingdom without electricity and turning off wind farms did not help to resolve the issue.
