  1. Utility-scale wind turbines are used in wind farms to produce enough energy for mass consumption. The exact size of these larger wind turbines can vary, so their energy output varies. Generally, a large-size wind turbine can generate anywhere between 700 kilowatts and 1.8 megawatts. At 1.8 megawatts, that turbine produces 5.2 million kilowatt-hours of electricity, enough power for 600 households. As more turbines are grouped together, they collect more energy from the available wind.
