Electrical Power Generation – Why Wind Power Fails To Deliver | PA Pundits – International

So, with the average sized generator for a wind tower coming in at around at between 2.5MW and 3MW, it’s simple Maths to see that to generate the same Nameplate power as that one 1,000MW unit at a coal fired plant, you will need between 330 (at 3MW) and 400 (at 2.5MW) towers, and if it is a new technology two unit coal fired plant, then multiply those totals by two, so anything up to 800 of those large wind towers. So, as you can see, just to equal the total generating Nameplate of the coal fired plant you now need anything up to 800 of those wind towers.

But that’s not the end of it.
