would be great to see windmills power output scale based on size. heres a calculator to help with that https://www.omnicalculator.com/ecology/wind-turbine.

to save you the hassle of converting kilonewtons -> newton meters -> horsepower -> wattage, assuming a strong breeze (so 100% wind speed), the ingame turbines are outputtung 10kw of power for a tier 5 wind turbine (with 20% less for each tier below that).

In real life, using the calculator above, as well as this calculator here to get the windspeed of a real life strong breeze, the power output is close to 50kw to 60kw after losses (assuming low losses).
i dont imagine youll want to buff the turbines that hard, but seeing some kind of behavior like this would be nice. you can probably do a lookup table of precalcualted power ratings for each tier of wind turbine if you were worried about efficiancy.
