Compare the effectivenesss of wind turbines based on the capacity factor of the project.

Use Capacity Factor Comparison to see how wind turbines compare in the real world over many years, month by month. All wind turbines are clearly not the same.

Renewables Map is possibly the only resource that links wind turbine make and model directly to capacity factor for all projects over 500kW.

Wandylaw Wind Farm Project
Powersystems were responsible for the design, installation, testing and commissioning of the electrical infrastructure associated with this project.
The Project was financed with RBS and achieved financial close in June 2012. Construction was completed in March 2013. It is now owned by Cubico Investments.
The final turbine has been erected at Pen Bryn Oer
Jones Bros overcomes geotechnical challenges as Pen Bryn Oer nears completion
The Green Investment Bank achieved financial close on 17 December 2015. Construction was completed in March 2017 and the Project was energised in March 2018.
Moray East is a highly competitive offshore wind project
In 2017 it won a 950MW contract for difference at competitive auction which set the price of power generated at 57.50 per MWhr, and will be delivered early in the next decade.
