Question

A large coal-fired power station produces 2000 MW of electrical energy. A wind turbine with 33 m blades can produce 300 kW. 

How many turbines would be needed to replace the power station? 

Solution

Electrical energy from the power station = 2000 MW = 2000000 kW
          Energy produced by the wind turbine = 300 kW
         Therefore, number of turbines needed = 2000000/300 = 6666.67
         Hence, 6667 turbines will be needed.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
