Technology

Turbines

Modern wind turbine generators are sophisticated, high-tech machines designed to capture the kinetic energy of the wind and convert it into electricity. A turbine’s blades capture the wind and rotate an internal shaft connected to a gearbox spinning a generator to produce electricity.

Jericho Rise Wind Farm consists of 37 Gamesa G114 2.1 MW wind turbines.
