Queen Elizabeth Throws Down For The World's Largest Wind Turbine

It’s not just Prince Charles that gets to enjoy all those cool, green toys. 

Queen Elizabeth has decided to invest some serious cash in the world’s largest wind turbine — a 7.5 megawatt monster. I’ve seen some 1.5mw behemoths that were gigantic, so this thing must be massive.

Now, of course, we don’t imagine the Queen herself was pouring over wind turbine options — this move comes on behalf of her property company the Crown Estate. From the article,

“The Estate, which owns most of the seabed off Britain’s shores, regularly leases out its land to wind farm projects but has never invested in the turbines. With a capacity of 7.5 megawatts, the Crown has gone for the biggest yet. ‘This is not something we’ve ever done before and I think it will raise quite a few eyebrows,’ Ben Barton, the company’s offshore manager for wind farms said.”

The turbine is expected to be fully operational by 2010 — with all the power generated sold to the national grid and the Queen’s iPod. Seriously. We hear she loves David Cook but would “love to have David Archuleta over for dinner.”
