Why “small” wind energy systems?
Despite popular belief, small wind turbines make economical sense.
The conclusion: “An efficient, reliable and well-placed small wind turbine will be profitable!”
- Efficient: It needs to have a good performance in converting wind energy into electricity, and it needs a decent size for this.
- Reliable: Very important! It needs to keep working and not break down.
- Well-placed: A wind turbine needs access to good and lots of wind!
- Profitable: During its entire lifetime, the turbine will pay for itself within a reasonable time frame and yield profit for many years after.
