How big are the wind turbines that are used for the farms in the ocean?

    In contrast to Europe where wind turbines have been built out in the ocean since 1991, these pelagic wind farms remain on paper in the United States. However, there are plans for wind farms to be built off the coasts of New York and New England. Drawings estimate the size of a typical turbine to extend about 100 meters from the ocean surface, with blades 120 meters in diameter. A proposed New York farm would add 140 MW to the grid, and it is theorized that a potential for 100 GW of capacity lies off the New England coast.
