Smaller Turbines Are Opening Up New Ways to Buy Wind

It’s great to see commercial-grade wind technology getting closer to main street USA.

“This month the manufacturer, Xzeres, began offering its 10-kilowatt model, which sits on a tower 60 to 100 feet high, with a rotor diameter of under 24 feet. By comparison, a utility-scale wind machine has a capacity that is 100 to 200 times larger, towers as high as 300 feet, and rotor diameters of 250 feet.”
