I think MW is a reasonable unit. It's the power output of the wind farm.

No. MW-hours is the reasonable unit of power output. MW is a description of the capacity, but it says nothing of actual generation.

I understand the number is an ideal, maximum number, but I'm talking about the units. Are you saying power should be reported in megawatt-hours per year? That might be convenient, but it's the same as megawatt-years per year, which reduces to megawatts which is what I said.
