New certified small wind turbine announced for US market
The latest small wind turbine to pass the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC), and achieve American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) approval for State incentives is the Kestrel e400nb.
The United States has incredible wind power resources, and Government reports predict that 20 percent of electricity will be wind produced by 2030.
There’s great community support for developing small wind power, and the latest small wind turbine to pass the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC), and achieve American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) approval for State incentives is the Kestrel e400nb.
With wind prevalent in most States and an average speed of 4.1 meters per second, wind energy is a great way to become eco-friendly, self-sufficient, less reliant on fossil fuels and reduce your electricity bill. And, depending on your State’s scheme, you can even earn money when you send energy back into the grid.
The leading small wind turbine from Kestrel can produce 3,930kWh annually, and is ideal for the US due to its size and affordability. Teamed with its durability it can withstand high wind speeds (156mph) and has proved itself already in the US with a number of successful installations.
“Solid returns from renewable energy, new technology and improved government incentives, makes it easier to become less reliant on fossil fuels.” Commented Kestrel Director, Leon Gouws. “The US Government’s commitment to renewable energy and the certification process means people can support this vision, with knowledge that their turbine is robust enough to withstand the toughest of winds, and is reliable to ensure consistent energy production.”
A quick science lesson
Electricity produced by the turbine is processed by an electronic inverter and fed into the grid. The property is then preferentially supplied by wind power, and any shortfall during peak demand is supplied by the grid. The result is that your energy bill is reduced by the amount of wind energy that is harvested.
Your chosen installer will be able to recommend your potential energy production, earnings and return on investment using your property’s co-ordinates.
