That depends on your situation, site location and preparation. Build time is less than a day with the tilt up tower, provided the foundation, concrete or ballasted, is ready to go. The electrical hookup usually takes an inspection that needs to be scheduled as well.
Good question! Power generated depends on wind speed. The DWT 3.0 is rated to generate 3500W at 11-12 m/s, but it will peak out up to 5000W on really windy days. What you really want to ask is how much energy I would generate in a given wind regime. The DWT 3.0 will generate ~ 4300 kWh in a wind regime with an average wind speed of 5 m/s.

Absolutely! This will reserve a spot for your turbine in the build queue.
Another good question! That depends on how much energy you need. Our turbine generates about about 4300 kWh annually in a 5 m/s (11 mph) average wind speed. Contact us and we can help you find out.
That depends on your local resources. In most areas, they are complimentary and both should be considered if you are opting for a renewable energy source. The sun doesn't shine at night, but the wind blows in the day and night. Summertime is usually better for solar as the sun is higher in the sky and the wind is usually less. In the winter, at least here in Upstate NY, the wind is much stronger and solar energy declines, especially when it snows!
