Renewable Energy: Africa’s 5 Biggest Wind Energy Farms

Electricity experts and renewable energy advocates agree that wind energy can provide a clean and sustainable alternative to burning fossil fuels. Renewable energy doesn’t consume water, uses little land and generates zero greenhouse gas emissions.

To generate a reasonable amount of wind energy, wind farms, which are a group of wind turbines in the same location, are used in generating electricity. These wind farms may cover anywhere from a few square meters to several thousands of square kilometers.

As the world increasingly turns its attention toward producing energy that is eco-friendly, renewable, and increasingly affordable, Face2Face Africa has put together a list of the five biggest wind energy farms in Africa based on the amount of electricity produced in megawatts.
