I live near a big Windmill park on the island named Smøla in Western Norway. Each mill produce ca 2MW. The production depend on the strength of the wind and the amount of time giving wind. It is an estimate that 68 mills support 25000 inhabitants with electric energy.
With average 2 persons in a household, the production gives enogh electric energy for ca 12000 households.

Each mill then supports about 200 households.

But in houses and buildings this is only for the basic stuff. But if the electricty goes out the windmill will not keep it on.
