||Windspire® wind turbines generate power when wind blows against the vertical airfoils causing them to spin. This power is then converted to AC electricity and is immediately available to provide energy to your building. While the technology behind the Windspire is complex, the basic premise is simple: the stronger the wind the more power they will generate. In 17.7 km/h (11mph) annual average winds, each Windspire will generate approximately 2,000 kWhs a year.
Windspires are eligible for rebates up to 50% off the total cost of the installation including the cost of the turbines.
Wind and Site Requirements
The Windspire® wind turbine was designed to operate in areas with average wind speeds of at least 4.5 m/s (10 mph), although they work best where average winds exceed 5.4 m/s (12mph). Winds vary by location, even within a property, and generally preferred sites have access to clear wind. Your
can discuss siting guidelines with you in more detail.
