Wind turbine heights, capacities increased over past 10 years, EIA data shows

Over the past decade, U.S. wind turbines have grown in height and capacity, attributing to more efficient use of wind resources and blade length designs, according to utility-scale electricity generator data collected by the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA). At higher altitudes, wind speed is increased and is not obstructed by various windbreakers, such as … Continue reading Wind turbine heights, capacities increased over past 10 years, EIA data shows
