Default The world’s largest offshore wind farm opened in England



The Thanet Wind Farm is situated around 7 miles out to sea, the 380-foot-high turbines are spread over more than 22 square miles. There are 100 turbines installed with a total of 341 planned.

The farm is expected to produce 300 megawatts of energy at full capacity, which would see Britain’s renewable energy capacity rise to five gigawatts.

Energy Secretary Chris Huhne welcomed Britain’s progress on wind power: “Britain now has the capacity to produce 5 gigawatts of wind-powered energy — roughly the amount of energy needed to power all the homes in Scotland”
