Britain has now gone more than 10 days straight without generating any of its electricity from coal, smashing the previous record set just weeks ago.

National Grid confirmed this morning the UK – not including Northern Ireland – is closing in on 260 continuous hours without coal-fired power generation, prompting speculation that should favorable weather conditions continue the coal-free period could last until the end of the month.

The country’s National Grid ESO (@ng_eso) tweeted:

“We’re still going strong with 258 hours (10 days 18 hours) without coal, barring any operational issues, the forecast is looking good for a couple more days of #zerocoal”
