42. Ugh...
Now your confusing watts with amps. The problem with wind power lies in storage and adaptability. You can't make a wind turbine spin faster at will and there are days that they will just turn slowly. Something that requires high amperage just won't be able to use a wind turbine unless its really humming at that point in time.

I would be surprised if the Cape Wind project is EVER built. Its a great idea, but too many poweful NIMBY's.
