1 MW is one mega watt. It is the rated power capacity of the wind turbine for a given (and constant) wind speed.can someone explain in simple terms what does 1mw wind turbine mean?

It depends on the capacity factor of the wind turbine and the household consumption. The capacity factor dependshow many houses can this power?

Therefore, the number of houses in the US that can be powered by a 1 MW wind turbine would be 1,000,000 x 0.40 x 8760 / 10600 = 331 homes.

Use the same approach as above to find this.if it is a 500w turbine, how many houses can this power?
