How long does it take to install a ducted turbine?

That depends on your situation, site location and preparation.  Build time is a couple days with the tilt up tower and an ambitious work crew. The electrical hookup usually takes an inspection that needs to be scheduled as well.

How much power does one turbine generate?

Good question! Power generated depends on wind speed.  The DWT 3.0 is rated to generate 3500W at 10-11 m/s.  What you really want to ask is how much energy I would generate in a given wind regime.  The DWT 3.0 will generate ~ 6700 kWh in a wind regime with an average wind speed of 5 m/s.

How long does an install take?

Well, that's a good question.

Can I put a downpayment down?

Absolutely! This reserves a spot in the build queue.

Is my site windy enough?

Another good question! That depends on how much energy you need. Our turbine generates about about 6700 kWh in a 5 m/s (11 mph) average wind speed.  Contact us and we can help you find out.

Can I get any government rebates?

Not at the moment. We are working on certifying the turbine to get approval from the SWCC at which point you will be eligible for the 30% Federal tax credit and any state incentives. This will be big news, so stay tuned for this!

Is wind better than solar?

That depends on your local resource. In most areas, they are complimentary and both should be considered if you are opting for a renewable energy source.
