It's a 7.5-megawatt monster to be built by Clipper Windpower of Carpinteria, Calif. Now the Royal Turbine is getting even bigger: Clipper has revealed to Fortune that Her Majesty's windmill has been supersized to ten megawatts, producing five times the power generated by typical big turbines currently in commercial operation. The giant's wingspan stretches the length of two soccer fields. At 574 feet, the turbine soars over Big Ben and roughly equals 111 Queen Elizabeths (the actual queen) plus one corgi stacked on top of one another.
The turbine is expected to be anchored offshore and put into use in 2012, when it will have the capability to power 3,700 homes. Link -Thanks, bob!
Not Queen of England, although she is that too.
A bit like saying George W Bush President of Idaho, although true, it sort of misses the larger reality.
the turbine soars over Big Ben and roughly equals 111 Queen Elizabeths (the actual queen) plus one corgi these are Imperial units of measurement as used officially in the UK.
5 corgis = 1 queen
500 queens = 1 big ben
128 big bens = 1 windsor
