The Wind Power Plant is a utility building that produces Power for your Sims.
Power Plants are designed to be connected to zones and buildings with Power Lines, but do not have to be as they provide power to other buildings within a three-tile radius and those buildings may relay that power to other buildings in another three-tile radius and so on.
The Wind Power Plant is the second most expensive power solution in the long term in SimCity 4, costing the more per MWh than every other power plant in the game except the Solar Power Plant.
It produces the least amount of power in the entire game, a paltry 200MWh/month, placing it behind the Natural Gas Power Plant, however it produces no pollution at all and does not explode when it reaches its decommission age.
Due to its low purchase cost, production, monthly cost and flammability, it is a viable choice for towns in the short term and one of the only truly 'safe' methods of producing power.
The Wind Power Plant is the only animated utility and one of only a handful of animated buildings in the game.
