Dear Claverton,

Below is a table of the complete fleet of eastern Australian wind turbines showing the maximum output capacity, annual load factor and the kW input when the wind isn’t blowing.  Some farms apparently have their own auxiliary power and don’t draw from the grid but in any event the drain on the grid is quite small.
