As per the Aarhus-settled organization, the monster V236-15.0 MW turbine will actually want to create about 80 gigawatt hours out of every year.

As innovation has created, the size of wind turbines has expanded. In a new report, industry body WindEurope said the normal appraised limit of turbines introduced in Europe a year ago was 8.2 MW, a 5% expansion on 2019. Limit alludes to the greatest sum a turbine can deliver, not really the thing it is presently producing.
