Replacing 750 kw turbines with larger machines.

You would think that kind of upgrade would require longer blades and hence new towers. So its a total loss of original investment. Turbines can be replaced with larger ones, but recovery value probably means reinstalling the old ones elsewhere (or selling those for installation elsewhere).

So greenfield installation nearby is probably best use of funds.
