    Even if your measurement of 100 acres was entirely accurate, then this would be 20 acres for 5 x 1.0 MW turbines (less of course if there were 8). The writer suggests 30 so maybe the figures are not too far adrift.

    I simply don't know enough about them, but even 20 acres seems a bit more than the suggested few sq metres.

    The trouble is that people are either fans of wind turbines or not; they have vested interest in their development as financial lenders or backers or they are green conservationists concerned about the landscape or concerned about sustainable energy. Each seems to pull figures out of the air..

    I simply want to know the truth. Conflicting statements do not help me.
