Small wind turbines utilize wind energy to produce clean, emissions-free power. Modern designs include a variety of form factors – towers, cubes, vertical and horizontal axis rotors – and can generate electricity at moderately low wind speeds.
By installing this simple and increasingly popular technology, businesses can:
- Generate power on-site
- Reduce energy bills
- Demonstrate environmental leadership
- Capture financial incentives
- Qualify for LEED certification credits
For many businesses, the highly visible nature of small wind turbines makes the marketing benefits as important as the energy produced.
Small wind turbines are typically defined as having rated capacities of 100 kW or less. Turbines may qualify for financial incentives and are cost effective in areas with moderate to abundant wind. In many markets, payback ranges from 5 to 10 years, or less.
