Although more rare than solar, good wind sites can be very productive. An open, unobstructed area of at least one acre and an average wind speed of 10mph in your area may indicate site potential. See our Wind Turbine Selection & Siting Criteria section for more information.
Besides the wind turbine, many of the other electrical components in a wind power system are the same as those used in solar electric or wind power systems. Contact us for more information, or to schedule a site evaluation and consultation.
Is a wind power system right for you?
