Power of wind  

Credit:  Bangor Daily News | May 27, 2015 | bangordailynews.com ~~

I read with care and interest all BDN pieces about wind power. I have never seen a report on the actual power generated by the wind. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the annual output of wind turbines in Maine was 1,048 thousand megawatt hours in 2013.

When the Maine Yankee nuclear plant was having a bad year, it was capable of producing 5,000 thousand megawatt hours. If we keep slogging away at this wind business and increase the present number of turbines by a factor of five, we may eventually reach the level of electricity once delivered by Maine Yankee.
