This screen compares the offerings of a dozen small-scale wind turbine providers, with power ratings in the range of 30kW of lower, for residential energy generation. Costs range from $1,000-6,000/kW.
For each company, we have tabulated their size, experience to-date, turbine parameters, estimated costs and system reliability.
The three key challenges are performance, relaibility and cost. We believe that resolving these issues creates a material opportunity for small-scale wind generation.
