Availability factor

Availability factor is a measurement of the reliability of a wind turbine or other power plant. It refers to the percentage of time that a turbine is ready to generate (that is, not out of service for maintenance or repairs). Modern wind turbines have an availability of more than 98%--higher than most other types of power plant.
