Calculations

All the calculations used to estimate annual wind farm output, the number of households it will supply and the CO2 emissions saved, are generic figures based upon the calculations below.

1. Average Output
Wind Farm Capacity in MW x Capacity Factor (%) x Annual Hours (8760) = Wind Farm Output (gross yield in MWhr per year)

2. Households Supplied
Predicted Output / Average Australian Electricity Consumption per Household p.a. (6.926 MWhr*) = Number of Households

3. CO2 Emissions Avoided
Wind Farm Output x CO2 Savings per kWhr = CO2 Emissions Avoided 

Our minimum and maximum emissions figures, in kilograms of CO2 emitted per MWhr, were obtained from the Australian Government Department of Climate Change (Jan 2008) National Greenhouse Accounts (NGA) Factors. A link to the site from which this came is also provided below:
