There seem to be some who just do not grasp how large these 500 foot turbines are. They are as tall as a 50 story building. Many that people have driven by in good wind areas are 200 to 300 feet tall. As the developers go to marginal wind areas they need taller turbines. More … Continue reading The size of 500 foot turbines is hard to grasp.
Industrial wind turbines are a lot bigger than ones you might see in a schoolyard or behind someone’s house. As wind energy has expanded into less and less ideal wind areas they have gotten larger, and most being installed are ranging from 400 to as tall as 700 feet. RES has stated that they are installing … Continue reading How big is a wind turbine?

How much energy do wind turbines produce? Every wind turbine has a range of wind speeds, typically around 30 to 55 mph, in which it will produce at its rated, or maximum, capacity. At slower wind speeds, the production falls off dramatically. If the wind speed decreases by half, power production decreases by a factor … Continue reading Wind Energy production as fickle as – The wind.
