Do wind farms upgrade their turbines every so often?

    Yes. Wind farm owners will upgrade their turbines if the machines become too old to function properly, or, as is often the case nowadays, a more efficient model of turbine comes out and the utility accordingly increases the energy output it expects from the farm. Recently, for example, Iberdrola Renovables of Spain —- the world’s largest operator of wind farms -— selected GE Energy grid integration technology to upgrade its GE 1.5 MW turbines at wind farms in the Castilla La Mancha, Murcia and Rioja regions of Spain to meet more stringent transmission standards.
