The El Hierro GdV wind turbines are under-powered by a factor of 7 compared to what will be needed for a successful system design to achieve 24/7/52 100% renewable on demand power.
The recommendation is that additional wind turbines be installed to a total capacity of 80MW.

A small community near Berlin is getting a lot of attention for being fully powered by renewable energy. There's no coal or gas, but plenty of turbines.
