GE plans ginormous offshore wind turbines

GE Energy is gambling on what it calls a “transformational” 15 MW wind turbine based on cutting-edge innovations in magnetic resonance imaging and nano-composites

These behemoths can’t be installed on land. They’re simply too big. Even transporting the parts on land would be near impossible. But they’ll do fine offshore. Each turbine could power 7,500 homes or so. Wow.
