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.

Solar Farm on Romney Marsh
to the south of the A259. It covers an area of approximately 114 acres of land at Sycamore Farm and is equipped with around 73,000 solar panels,
Turning On N.Ireland’s Largest Solar Project!
Lough Road a major solar development in Antrim, delivering over 32 MW of clean, renewable energy into the Northern Irish energy grid.
Nostie Bridge
Nostie Bridge power station receives water from Lochalsh Dam via a pipeway and is a relatively early example (1948) of the development of smaller scale one off hydro power schemes.
Norfolk Vanguard
The 1.8 gigawatt (GW) capacity project would meet the equivalent electricity needs of 5% of UK households* - around 1.3 million homes.
Tangy Repower
In August 2018, SSE submitted a Section 36 Application to Scottish Ministers seeking consent to replace the existing 22 operational turbines for 16 modern, more efficient machines.
