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.

INVERCLYDE'S skyline is changing as the first of eight massive wind turbines is installed in the hills above Greenock.
MASSIVE Blades For Inverclyde Windfarm Turbines Start Arriving
THE first convoys carrying huge turbine blades for a windfarm being built in the hills near Greenock travelled to the area today (Tuesday). Two trucks escorted by police motorbikes travelled to the site from King George V Dock in Glasgow.
The next frontier of wind power
A new report starkly sets out the shortcomings of Britain's role in the supply chain, while other countries surge ahead. It recommends government action to back the industry, and to counteract the risks from Brexit.
