Wind Power Question: How much of the time do wind turbines produce electricity?
Answer: A modern wind turbine produces electricity 70-85% of the time, but it generates different outputs depending upon the wind speed. Over the course of a year, it will generate about 30% of the theoretical maximum output. This is known as the load factor for a wind turbine and to compare, the load factor of conventional power stations is only averaging 50%.
