The wind farm will have 39 Siemens 2.3 MW wind turbines installed, to produce an optimum output of 90 MW.
The wind farm will on full capacity produce 185 million kWh of annual electricity supply.
It will be enough to power 70,000 households and prevent the emission of 130,000 tons of Carbon dioxide.

The tire plant is not going to happen! It is an idea that does not have any merit. The only plant that functions solely on tires for energy is located in Japan, they have much less stringent environmental laws there. Financially the proposed plant would cost much more money than it would be worth, with the huge abundance of natural gas and the low price of that gas no one is investing in alternative energy that is this controversial. The people who are pushing this concept missed the boat a few years back, there are no banks or lending institutions that would put any money into this idea.
Look for wind and solar to really take off around the country, you are seeing many creative variations in that market right now, but even those fields have seen a "pull back" with the low cost of natural gas.
