We can harness the energy of the wind in a variety of ways in order to produce not only electricity but also momentum. Both industrial and home wind turbines can be used to provide a source of renewable electricity. Wind Power is intermittent and relies on there actually being wind! However it is still a viable means of providing some electricity, and ideally in homes a domestic system could be used for pumping water around the garden. Larger turbines are more efficient, and if you have a need for a larger system, we would recommend that you talk to one of our experts.
Before purchasing small wind turbines for your home or business, you should consider the surrounding environment of the placement location, and if it meets the requirements for a wind turbine installation to be cost effective and efficient.
Wind speeds vary a great deal, depending on your surroundings. For example, if you live in a city or town the power from the wind is usually weaker than in the middle of a field in the countryside.
If you live in the countryside, and are surrounded by many fields and open spaces, then the average wind speed approaching your home may be more powerful than inner town or city locations.
Another factor to consider is the way the land around you lies.
If there are any large hills or mountains close by, then the placement of wind turbines may not be your best option.
Wind turbines require a substantial wind speed to generate electricity efficiently. The faster the wind, the more output in watts you can generate (but you cannot go over your turbines capacity.)
If there is a forest or collection of trees nearby, then you may decide to opt for a different means of renewable energy such as solar or geothermal power due to a possible poor wind speed.
Before purchasing any turbines, you should research and hire a professional to do a survey on the surrounding area, to determine if a wind turbine would be economically viable in your surrounding area. It is important that you receive expert advice when planning to purchase a wind turbine, as some may not be suitable for your requirements. A wind turbine supplier may be able to help you with this process.
Many people suggest attaching small home turbines on a pole in a well exposed area, to harness the majority of the winds force. Once installed in an open space, above any large objects, make sure your turbine is facing the most common wind direction. Some wind turbines are able to adjust themselves to face the position of the wind.
