Wind Turbine

I'd build the world's largest wind farm in my city, except Florida doesn't really get as much wind as it does sunlight. Therefore, solar is the best bet in my neck of the woods.

Rick L.

I agree. From the south, it's all about the sunlight. Kudos. Great stuff. Thanks a bunch Rick L.

It was really heartening to know that Worlds Largest, $1.8 Billion, 500 MW; Wind Farm would be Built off the Coast of UK. It will be a real boost to provide an alternate source of energy...

Tracy i think you just found the right place! I agree more countries need to do the same if we are going to lower CO2 emissions. I also think every little bit helps, including generating your own wind and solar power at home.

Wind Turbines produce FREE power!

It is environmentally safe to use.

Basically, wind turbines are machines that rotate whenever the force of the wind blows by it. It transforms kinetic energy into mechanical energy. The latter is then converted into electricity. The power generated is dependent of the actual wind power. The stronger the wind, the more power is produced. The wind is a very good source of power as it is available all the time. It replenishes very quickly.

Most of the time, wind turbines have 3 blades placed on the top most portion of a tower. They are designed to be placed on top so as to get maximum wind power.

With the skyrocketing cost of electricity, it is but practical to utilize the power of the wind in the form of wind turbines. Producing your own electrical power at home is very convenient and environmentally safe. Just imagine the amount of money you can save if you have your own wind turbine.

Construction work is scheduled to commence for the offshore site in summer 2009, I hope it will start on time,

Clee, I think you have generator size confused with plant size. Plants have multiple generators.

Just looking at coal, a coal fired generator operates at full nameplate capacity where the wind machines will get at best 30% to 40% of nameplate capacity. The energy produced by this "500MW" wind plant will be lucky to provide 15% of that produced by even a small coal plant.

It is extremely expensive to maintain and to upgrade. Looks like a big looser financed by taxing people.............

There is still a lot of controversy surrounding the pros and cons of wind power and its local.

It is one of the prestigious projects. Nice article.

It is easy Bob. How much electricity is produced. Divide this number by the total amount of electricity is produced.

This is the amazing and biggest farm made in the UK. Through the Energy Bill they are providing more financial support to offshore projects. The unbelievable thing will be construction of 140 turbines. I think this will be very useful facilities for UK people.

Try building a greenhouse.

It's tough especially if you're looking for greenhouse building supplies

Wind turbines

With an increase in the carbon emission and pollution many automotive companies and industries are trying to find an alternative fuel efficient vehicles and technology for the consumers. Good innovative ideas reflected in this post

Do you just harvest algae, and seaweed from open lake/ocean, or do you need intensively managed ponds? If it is the former, the cost per acre should be dominated by the harvest process. If the former, the cost per acre will go up greatly.

Wonderful post about "Worlds Largest, $1.8 Billion, 500 MW, Wind Farm to be Built off the Coast of UK".

EPC

I live close to where this wind farm is to be constructed, and regularly sail off the coast here. In response to the earlier comment about being better to spread turbines out to better ensure some are in a windy area, I can assure you that 25km off the sussex coast it is nearly always windy. Being right bang in the center of the track of low pressure systems coming in from the atlantic, it is very rare to have more than 1 still day a month througout the year.

It's good to know that they are planning to build a windfarm at the Coast of UK. Wind power are really useful. Aside from producing electricity, it's also part of the battle in reducing global warming!

bard catheters

That's great, I just got this article very helpful. and also I have shared these words with my friends..

Thom Johnson

With the wind being predictably consistant off the cost of Sussex; has any one actually thought of doubling the amount of energy with hydro power? Wind that is that constant has to generate a steady current just below the surface. UK could be become the first country that runs entirely off of renewable energy.

I hope the construction of this project in United Kingdom will produce more energy to meet the rising demands.I suggest the author to visit the site http://investmentsinenergy.com , since this site has a great deal of info about the investments made in the renewable energy sector and many sensational news on energy.

Really good news for all of UK citizens, now we are moving more & more towards greener energy production units which can not only reduce green house gases also utilize the wind power which we ignore for lots of years.

B2B Marketplace

Great Information and post! It is very informative and suggestible for the user of solar energy, May I think it can be beneficial in coming days...

Adult Diapers

That's good, I like it.

renewable energy sources

In addition, they should encourage decentralised energy production, and use of perhaps roof integrated wind turbines, http://www.energy-measures.com/wind_turbines/

its good to hear about the plan keep updating

It is great energy park i must say . Feel the world around energy park and get revital in the air.

Together, we settled on a repayment plan that I could live with, and the debt consolidation company continued to monitor my progress to ensure success.

Solar Panels

Using free energy such as wind turbines is a neat idea although it is rather expensive to maintain which is one major downside in utilizing this type of energy. Using solar panels to tap solar energy is a way lot better since it requires little or no maintenance at all to use it.

The key of course is the the natural inverse proportion of nuclear to fossil. With wind and no nuclear, it means building into the system a set amount of fossil for spinning reserve. Thus the Germans plant to build 8 brand spanking new dirty coal plants to supplement wind energy. Well done. Of course they were going to build 23 (!!!!) plants but there was so much opposition they cut it down by 2/3s. Now they are projection a defecit in power, made up by...the always ready French nuclear grid. What can one conclude about this.Hermes Scarf

Well, Pickens knows the score...the profit margin he expects, to be pocketed by his company, equals the tax subsidies he'll get for buildng and running wind turbines. If the money is there, go for it.

nice +1 for natural energy sources, i heard that there is a technology that can store solar energy for 18 hours, imagine the difference it would make especially to countries with large deserts

Wow that is a lot of money, but if it works it'll be worth it in the long run!

Auto Lease Broker Los Angeles

Interesting it'll be off the UK coast, is there a lot of wind in that region?

Dentist Los Angeles

So expensive and half the size of a power plant? Fascinating...

Therapist New York

For that much money I'm sure the plant is still there, wonder how it's doing, though

This is only good for the people of the united Kingdom, not us here in the U.S. This plant would have saved a lot of jobs in this current dire economic situation.

Wow, $1.8 Bil? Are they making their money back by now?

What's up with this wind farm?
