As we navigate the math it shows a different route than what all the sales pitchers keep throwing at us when we look at actual wind based electrical generation capacity.

They are always saying how the wind is always blowing somewhere when we ask what we are supposed to do when the wind is not blowing at various times. Plug that electric care in all you want to a 100% wind powered grid and it is not going to charge yet these dream mechanisms keep claiming we can power the world with renewable energy.

The data shows no matter how many installations you place over beautiful rolling countryside to the dismay of so many, and claims of how many homes they would power is only about 1/2 what they claim down  to one fifth in calculations based on Europe's various wind installations. So when they say "it will power 100,000 homes" start with the idea that you might be able to count on it doing only 20,000.

19.3% to 55.3% peak output was stated by Andrew ZP Smith, ORCID: 0000-0003-3289-2237; "UK offshore wind capacity factors". Retrieved from https://energynumbers.info/uk-offshore-wind-capacity-factors on 2020-06-10 11:00 GMT

On that page pay particular note to the "load duration curves" video chart animation.
