Eight New Wind Turbines in the Puerto del Rosario Municipality
#1
The first of 8 new wind turbines is being put up in the Puerto del Rosario Municipality.

There will be a total of 8, in 3 different locations - El Time, La Asomada amd La Matilla.

The turbines will produce enough electricity to supply 42,000 homes - which is about 3 times the amount needed for consumption in Puerto del Rosario.

With the steady (relatively) winds on the island they should be able to be completely self sufficient in electricity needs. There must be no more than 100,000 homes on the island, even counting holiday lets

El Hierro already is 100% self sufficient, the rest of the archipelago is playing catch up now. Thumbs Up

Quote:“La nueva infraestructura, que comienza a construir Naturgy, contará con 8 aerogeneradores que sumarán una potencia total de 29,2 megavatios (MW) y producirá alrededor de 105 GWh de energía al año, equivalentes al consumo eléctrico anual de 42.000 viviendas, 2,3 veces el consumo de las viviendas de Puerto del Rosario”, afirma la compañía.

“The new infrastructure, which Naturgy begins to build, will have 8 wind turbines that will add a total power of 29.2 megawatts (MW) and will produce around 105 GWh of energy per year, equivalent to the annual electricity consumption of 42,000 homes, 2, 3 times the consumption of homes in Puerto del Rosario, ”says the company.

29.2 MW = 29,200 KW per day generated

29,200 KW / 42,000 homes = 0.6952 KW per home per day

That'll cover your 2KW heater (or kettle) running for about 20 minutes.     ...or four (7W) LED bulbs being on non-stop.

Not sure about anyone else but I'm positive we're using more than 700W per day.

There must be a misprint somewhere. You would generate more power with a bicycle dynamo

The mistake is dividing 29.2MW by 365 days to get a meaningless figure.

The 29.2 MW is what the turbines are supposed to be able to produce continuously. Multiply that by 365 and then 24 to get the total (theoretical) annual energy produced in mega watt hours (MWh), then divide by 1000 to get giga watt hours (GWh).

Watts or kilo watts, mega watts and gigawatts are the instantaneous power, Watt hours etc gives the total energy produced (or consumed) etc.

Spot on Keithal

The calc is 29.2 x 24 x 365 x .41 (which is the typical factor for wind availability after planned and unplanned outages) =104.874 Gwh per year
