Why We Need To Rethink Wind Turbines. Go to https://brilliant.org/Undecided/ and get 20% off your subscription and a 30 day free trial with Brilliant.org! Wind turbines have a “big” problem. As in, they’re really big: bigger than you might think. One of the latest wind turbine designs sports a swept area of about 10 American football fields. This is generally desirable, especially for offshore wind turbines. More height and larger diameters mean more energy captured with fewer towers. But as you can probably imagine, this makes producing, transporting, and installing these things a colossal undertaking. And as wind turbine manufacturers have competed against each other, the push to maximize size has ended up undermining quality.
