I’m in an area mostly on a large hilly area with lots of wind. But with the tree lines and as the land rolls there’s a bit of turbulence unless I go up 50′ or so. Just trying to get a kite up on a windy day tales a bit of effort until it gets to that 50’+ range. So my question is could a VAWG do the trick dealing with the changing wind direction and turbulence at about 20 to 30′ off the ground. And then with the hundreds of vertical wind generators out there has anyone found a reliable solution? Thank you all in advance! Off grid Solar 48v
I love Windmills, Turbines, Chimes and those garden decorations that all spin to the invisible power of the wind. I don’t own a Turbine or even how to install one but if you can switch to 100% renewable energy anyway then what purpose does having one yourself serve? 🙂
Urban Small Wind Turbine I am looking into a small off-grid wind generator system to be installed on or near my company’s building. Unfortunately, there are height restrictions regarding this type of construction because we are in the city. I can only go 15 ft above the roof, which is only about 15 ft as is. I know that I may not get much power from such a short distance off the ground and I know the urban environment is not the best for wind energy, but I would like to give it a try anyway. The wind resource isn’t great here, but it is OK. We get 10 mph wind on average, but gust around 40-50 mph regularly and sometimes over 100.
I was wondering if anyone knows of a good turbine for these conditions or could give me any advice on how to find one. I am looking for 1-5 kW that can handle turbulence well, the smaller the better, and I would like to buy from a well established wind turbine company. Would you recommend HAWT or VAWT? Thanks in advance!
