"The eight lines of turbines, running north-west to south-east, cover a total area of 35sq km off Foreness Point near Margate. With 100 turbines, each 115 metres high with 44-metre blades, it can generate 300 megawatts (MW) of power â enough for 200,000 homes." http://www.guardian.co.uk/environment/2010/sep/23/thanet-windfarm-bright-future-green-industry via link in article "Blow to UK green techonology industry as less than 20% of Â£900m investment in Thanet windfarm goes to British firms. . . .
