The huge Vestas structure is expected to be 80 gigawatt-hours a year which is enough to power 20,000 homes.
Vestas claims its prototype “will be the tallest and most powerful wind turbine in the world once installed,” other organizations are also building their own enormous turbines.
V236-15 MW will raise standards in the wind energy industry in terms of technological innovation, industrialization, and scale.
