Kingston.    As of 22 December 2012.      1658*1200 =  1,989,600 KWh’s.

Kingston's NSTAR meter as of 22 Dec 2012, 1658 X 1200 KWh's

Does Kially Ruiz find this above picture accurate ?   Does he think recent claims about “turbines for sale” in Kingston scientific and factual ?   I myself doubt it.   Kially is of course free to comment here.   -Malcolm

  1. Kingston’s tower is not 90m. It is an 80m tower. Kingston was commissioned on May 16th.

    Please note that the Hull turbine was installed on a 60m tower, and Scituate’s on an 80m tower. This is a huge difference and the wind speeds at hub height would definitely be higher for Scituate. Therefore it is reasonable to expect a higher capacity factor for Scituate.

    This all goes to say that it is very difficult to make straight comparisons between wind turbines.
