Enercon, one of the most innovative wind power companies in the world, has just announced begun selling a six megawatt wind turbine! That's a good 20% more powerful than any other turbine on the market, producing enough power per turbine to power 4,000 homes. Enercon doesn't spend much time figuring out names for it's turbines. Their most popular model, the E-40, has a turbine diameter of 40 m, while this new turbine, the E-112, has a turbine diamter of 112 meters! Dang!
Interestingly, this isn't the world's largest wind turbine, it just produces the most power, a testament to Enercon's innovative strategies. The turbine blades are specially designed, and Enercon's patented gearless generator keeps noise, friction, and maintenance to a minimum.
I'm loving watching wind turbines get bigger, more powerful, and less expensive per watt. It's almost like Moore's law, except instead of cooler video games...we get a cooler planet.
