Turbine Thoughts

Thinking about Wind for Your Home?

Then think again! And again!

Small distributed wind is a perfect renewable energy strategy to add to your home energy mix if you have the wind resource. And a ducted turbine is even better!  It is also a great compliment to solar!   

"Today, wind is the cheapest energy in America; solar is not far behind. In time, fossil fuels will only get more and more expensive." - Mark Ruffalo (2016)

Below is a table that gives you and idea what kind of energy your DWT 3.0 turbine will give you, based on your local wind resource.

Some issues to consider

There are many issues to consider when thinking about putting a turbine at your home or farm. Wind resource, connecting to the utility, permitting, and, of course, cost. Feel free to contact us if you need more information!

Small Wind a Commercial Option?

Integration of small distributed wind into the commercial sector provides a resilient, redundant option to a large single source turbine. It's not just about 'going green'. It's about being available when the grid goes down for any reason. It's about saving money as energy costs increase. It's about making the right decision for the right reasons. And, yes, it's definitely about 'going green'!

"I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy, what a source of power. I hope we don't have to wait until oil and coal run out before we tackle that" - Thomas Edison (1931)

Distributed wind also minimizes the waste associated with transporting electrical energy. Roughly 5% of the electricity generated is lost to transmission, according to the EIA. Why should you be paying for this energy loss?

What should I be thinking of?

There are many questions for commercial wind: Stand alone?  Rooftop?  How many?  Engineering Support? And only one answer: Contact DWT!
