In Britain, 100 wind turbines to supply electricity to 200,000 homes a year

41736.jpegThe world's largest offshore wind farm opened Thursday off the British coast, with 100 wind turbines capable of supplying enough electricity for 200,000 homes a year.

The farm, off the coast of Kent in southern England, is part of a major renewable energy initiative spearheaded by the previous British government, CNN informs.

The 380ft (115m) turbines are spaced out over an area of more than 22 square miles (35 square km) and are visible from the shore on a clear day.

The site, situated around seven miles (12 km) out to sea, is expected to produce 300 megawatts of energy at full capacity and which would see overall UK renewable energy capacity rise to 5 gigawatts, AFP reports.
