How much energy do wind farms produce compared to coal plants?



  1. 0 Votes

    In 2008, wind farms worldwide produced 1.5% of the world’s electricity usage, while coal plants generally produce 40% of the world’s electricity usage.

    As for individual wind farms versus individual coal plants, every plant produces a different amount of megawatts (MV) depending upon what it can produce. For example, a wind farm may be able to produce 100 MV, but only when the wind is at its maximum. On the other hand, a coal plant that can produce 1,000 MV can do so constantly.
