Fluctuations in wind speeds mean that wind turbines are not working at capacity at all times. This is reflected in the data above.
The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory estimates 1 MW can power on average 1,200 U.S. homes. This means 93 wind turbines working at 46% capacity that could have been built with the constructions costs of 432 Park Avenue could have powered
On January 1, 2016, 23 nautical miles away from Montauk Point, NY the averaged wind speed was 7.27 m/s. These are considered class 7 winds. The graphic below shows wind speed fluctuation on that day.
Commercial wind power development becomes feasible around wind power class 4.
