Electricity from wind energy is one of the fastest growing methods of electrical generation in the world. Surprisingly, it is also one of the most affordable forms of electricity today. Using wind energy reduces the environmental impact of generating electricity because it requires no fuel and does not produce pollution or greenhouse gases.
If Feed-in Tariffs are available in your area, you can get paid for the electricity you generate even if you use it. What you don’t use, you can export to the local grid – and get paid for that too.
If you’re not connected to your local electricity grid, you can store excess electricity in batteries and use it when there is little to no wind. This greatly benefits people such as ranchers and farmers living in rural areas, where a big portion of the best wind sites are found.
Electricity generated by wind turbines does not pollute the water we drink or the air we breathe, so wind energy means less smog, less acid rain, and fewer greenhouse gas emissions.
Wind energy systems have low operating expenses mainly due to the fact that they have no fuel costs. The absence of fuel costs protects wind turbine owners from fluctuating coal and natural gas costs.
Before even deciding to install a wind energy system, we will need to verify if you qualify. More importantly, we will undertake some wind speed monitoring to make sure that you have sufficient wind in your area to sustain a wind turbine.
Following the on-site wind speed monitoring, one of our system designers will advise you on the position, size and type of wind turbine to maximize your available electricity. We will also look into available incentives from the government or utilities.
We offer you ongoing insights to operation and maintenance data for your wind turbine. You will be able to download various figures including potential enhancements that maximize performance and profitability and potentially prevent unexpected downtime.
