 The Power of Wind Energy

If you went through the planning steps to evaluate whether a small wind electric system will work at your location, you will already have a general idea about:

The amount of wind at your site

The zoning requirements and covenants in your area

The economics, payback, and incentives of installing a wind system at your site.

Now, it is time to look at the issues associated with installing the wind system:

Siting -- or finding the best location -- for your system

Estimating the system’s annual energy output and choosing the correct size turbine and tower

Deciding whether to connect the system to the electric grid or not.

Grid-Connected Small Wind Electric Systems

Small wind energy systems can be connected to the electricity distribution system. These are called grid-connected systems. A grid-connected wind turbine can reduce your consumption of utility-supplied electricity for lighting, appliances, electric heating and cooling, and vehicle charging. If the turbine cannot deliver the amount of energy you need, the utility makes up the difference. When the wind system produces more electricity than your household requires, the excess is credited and used to offset future use of utility-supplied power. 

Modern grid-connected wind turbines will operate only when the utility grid is available. They can also operate during power outages when configured to work in tandem with storage to form a home microgrid to provide back-up power.

Grid-connected systems can be practical if the following conditions exist:

  • You live in an area with average annual wind speed of at least 9 miles per hour (4 meters per second).

  • Utility-supplied electricity is expensive in your area (about 10 cents per kilowatt-hour).

  • The utility's requirements for connecting your system to its grid are not prohibitively expensive, and there is sufficient capacity to integrate your system.

Wind Power in Isolated Grid Systems

Wind power can be used in isolated off-grid systems, or microgrid systems, not connected to an electric distribution grid. In these applications, small wind electric systems can be used in combination with other components -- including a small solar electric system -- to create hybrid power systems. Hybrid power systems can provide reliable off-grid power for homes, farms, or even entire communities (a co-housing project, for example) that are far from the nearest utility lines.

An off-grid, hybrid electric system may be practical for you if the items below describe your situation:

  • You live in an area with average annual wind speed of at least 9 miles per hour (4.0 meters per second).

  • A grid connection is not available or can only be made through an expensive extension. The cost of running a power line to a remote site to connect with the utility grid can be prohibitive.

  • You would like to gain energy independence from the utility.

  • You would like to generate clean power.
