You need approx. 40,000 of the largest wind turbines to power a medium
sized city as well.
More B.S. anti-nuke, anti-traditional power generation pipe-dreams...

    Hmm I believe the largest wind turbine is a 1.5MW unit - so a
medium size city require 60 GW ? OK so we probably only get 25% of the
rated capacity - 15 GW still sounds high for a medium city it sounds about
right for a large city of 10 million or so.

    Now that's enough to make it impractical for wind to carry the base
load so you didn't need to exaggerate.

This was some years ago.
Most new installations have 2 to 5 MW

In average are 2000 full power hours per year.
So 4000 to 10000 MWh per year.
