Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

Wind power generation is a capital-intensive process, and the efficiency with which capital is employed has a major influence on the cost of the project.

The industry requires minimal labor input following the installation of the wind turbine, and turbines have a long economic life. The most significant cost for industry operators is depreciation as the capital required to generate energy is substantial. While the capital involved in producing wind power requires little operational labor, following installation, maintenance is the only important remaining labor cost.

This ratio will remain relatively constant... purchase to read more
