The Coquina Beach wind turbine is the first grid-connected wind turbine in the coastal communities of eastern North Carolina and is rated at 2.5 kilowatts. The 20-meter turbine will generate approximately 5,000 kilowatt hours per year, enough to power the Coquina Beach facility as well as providing additional electricity to the state's electric supply.
