A Wind turbine was a large tower with a fan-like mechanism at the top used to create electricity. On Hoolefar island they had a Bolt crank at the top in order to keep the fan-like blades either hidden inside metallic casing, or open in the sky to turn by wind power. Many wind turbines had vents and magnetic surfaces on the edge of them.
When Ratchet was on Hoolefar island, he helped the Hoolefoids by manually opening their wind turbines in order to generate electricity after they were closed, most likely by sabotage.
