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.
