Are Small Wind Turbine Generators Worth It?

Yes, indeed a Wind Turbine is worth it.

It’s important to note that the efficiency is dependant on the location

Certain situations are where there is ample wind resource and favourable conditions. When installed and maintained correctly they can significantly reduce your electricity bills or if you are off-grid give you the power you need. When combined with Solar Panels you have the best of both solutions

Wind Power

Wind energy offers many advantages, which explains why it’s one of the fastest-growing energy sources in the world. To further expand wind energy’s capabilities and community benefits, researchers are working to address technical and socio-economic challenges in support of a decarbonized electricity future.

How does a wind turbine generate electricity 

A wind turbine converts wind energy into electricity

A wind turbine converts wind energy into electricity through the aerodynamic force exerted on its rotor blades, which function similarly to airplane wings or helicopter rotor blades. As wind passes over the blade, the air pressure on one side diminishes. This pressure differential across the blade surfaces generates lift and drag. The lift force is stronger than the drag, causing the rotor to spin. The rotor is connected to the generator either directly, in the case of a direct drive turbine, or via a shaft and a set of gears—a gearbox—that increases the rotation speed, enabling a smaller generator. This process of converting aerodynamic force into rotational energy generates electricity.

  • Wind power creates good-paying jobs. There are over 125,000 people working in the wind industry and that number continues to grow. According to the wind turbine services. Technicians are one of the fastest growing job of the decade. Offering career opportunities ranging from blade fabricator to asset manager, the wind industry has the potential to support hundreds of thousands of more jobs by 2050.
  • Wind power benefits local communities. Wind projects deliver an estimated £2 billion in state and local tax payments and land-lease payments each year. Communities that develop wind energy can use the extra revenue to put towards school budgets, reduce the tax burden on homeowners, and address local infrastructure projects.
  • Wind turbines work in different settings. Wind energy generation fits well in agricultural and multi-use working landscapes. Wind energy is easily integrated in rural or remote areas, such as farms or coastal and small island communities, where high-quality wind resources are often found.
