Illinois Potential Wind Capacity Chart
The chart shows another way to understand the potential wind capacity above a given gross capacity factor at 80-, 110-, and 140-m tower heights. The table lists the estimates of land area with a gross capacity of 35% and greater at 80-, 110-, and 140-m heights and the potential wind capacity from development of the "available" land area after exclusions. In the table, "installed capacity" shows the potential megawatts of rated capacity that could be installed on the available land area. Areas excluded for wind development by law as well as urban areas and water bodies are not included (see Wind Resource Exclusion Table for more detail).
