Every power station has a capacity factor, which is the percentage of actual production relative to possible production. Rehman 06:37, 15 March 2019 (UTC)


  • Symbol support vote.svg Support However I'm not sure '%' works in Wikidata as a quantity, you probably want to provide this as a fraction (0.450) etc. ArthurPSmith (talk) 19:06, 15 March 2019 (UTC)

  • Symbol support vote.svg Support keep percentage (Q11229) as unit, using fraction in a case when percentage (Q11229) is used in real world is confusing for both users and editors.--Jklamo (talk) 09:58, 22 March 2019 (UTC)
