The seven 660-KW wind turbines in Askam-in-Furness have a combined capacity of 4.62 megawatts. Their owner, Eon Netz of Germany, claims that they produce enough power for 2,500 homes.
The production figures show that since April 2004, the average monthly output has been 654.4 MWh, or an average rate of production of 896.2 kilowatts, 19.4% of their capacity. For the 2,500 homes Eon claims, that’s 358 watts each.
Since 2007, production has been consistently lower: 14.3% of capacity since April 2007. That’s 264 watts for each of Eon Netz’s 2,500 homes. In June 2010, the average load was 107 watts for each of those homes.
