After driving by a new Indiana wind farm, Jeff Id wrote an article at his blog here where he takes a calculator and runs the numbers on how much land it would take to if we replaced our current generation capacity in the US with 100% wind.

Phase One of the Indiana wind farm he writes about consists of 121 turbines over 26,000 acres (about 215 acres per turbine).
A new windfarm in Michigan spreads 35 wind turbines out over 3,500 acres (100 acres per turbine) and operates at about 24% of nameplate capacity.
