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.

Offshore wind powers North-East jobs in a boost for UK supply chain
More than 440 jobs are being created and safeguarded across the North-East of England in an offshore wind production boom thanks to £130 million of government and private investment.
U.K. Wind Power Generation Hits Highest Level in Over a Month
U.K. wind power generation climbed to the highest level in more than a month on Wednesday, easing the country’s reliance on expensive natural gas.
Giant offshore wind farm in Forth would be UK's largest
SSE Renewables is set to file a scoping report in the next few days for the 4.1 gigawatt Berwick Bank “super project”, which will see up to 307 of the world’s tallest and most powerful turbines built in the Firth of Forth.
‘World’s largest’ floating wind farm completed off north-east coast
This milestone also marks the start of the long-term Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) signed in 2018 between Statkraft and Kincardine Offshore Windfarm Ltd (KOWL).
Wind power. Here’s what happens when it stops blowing
But just as Europe needs energy the most, the wind in the North Sea has stopped blowing, forcing regional energy markets to scramble for gas reserves to heat homes and power businesses.
