Thanet Offshore Wind Farm

Thanet Offshore Wind Farm is currently the world's largest wind farm. When conditions are right (i.e. there is wind!) the facility should produce enough electricity to power 240,000 homes, the equivalent of half the county of Kent. The Thanet offshore wind farm cost around £780 million ($1.2b) to build.
The farm consists of around a hundred huge wind turbines - each up to two and a half times the height of Nelson's Column at Trafalgar Square.
The UK aims to generate at least 20 percent of its total power requirements using wind turbines.
