Today's Wind Energy Production

This graph depicts performance of wind farms connected to the electricity grid in south-eastern Australia over a 24-hour period.

The default, capacity factor graph shows the output as a percentage of registered capacity. On average wind farms in south-east Australia operate at a capacity factor of around 30-35%.

Alternatively, you may view the actual output in megawatts.

Different wind farms may be included or excluded from the graphs by toggling the check boxes. The total will update accordingly.
