Quick Turbine Buyer's Guide, How to Choose

Postby Rooftop Wind Turbine » Thu Apr 09, 2009 2:43 am

Pictures of Recent Home Turbine Install
I have added a picture of a tower install. We don't really recommend towers for homeowners but can do it if that's what you require. Most of the pictures are of rooftop wind system installation done recently.

Wind Only, or Wind+Solar?
First options in choosing your kit are, wind only, or wind AND solar. You'll notice that in the name description and the model numbers wind/solar, or WS, means kit has solar panels in kit. Having a hybrid wind AND solar system is really going to make it a more consistant green energy system. If you're on a budget, get the wind and you can always add solar later, we will always help you upgrade these systems, it's all based on low price point to get into home power. We can't all afford a giant windmill or solar system, these are affordable. Below is a graph showing the weather cycles of wind/solar and why wind/solar hybrid is so much better than solar only, or wind only systems.


How Much Energy & Budget
The kits scale up by adding more wind and solar, from 1 turbine to three turbines. If you want a config that isn't listed, Call and I can direct you to a page to purchase larger systems. I actually recommend the smaller systems in most cases because my systems are so easy to add on another unit later, very modular, clear upgrade path. We have configures systems up to 6 turbines in a system, so that's up to 5.1 KW or 5100 watts of hybrid power...

Grid-Tie or Off-Grid?
Grid-Tie is more costly but you can tie directly to the home's panel and power goes TO AND FROM the grid. You can actually run the meter backwards, selling Excess Generation to the local utility company. More cost and red-tape, but a really nice way to go if you have the time and budget
to work it out. Grid-Tie Forum

Off-Grid is a way to get started easier, quicker, with less cost and red-tape. Personally, I run Off-Grid because it's so much more economical to build and add to my systems. Additionally, my local Utility does not pay fair prices for my power and it's not a very fair deal for me to go to all that expense. ALSO, You can always upgrade to Grid-Tie later and it's all easily upgradeable anytime. So, I recommend the Off-Grid cheaper systems for starting out. Off-Grid Forum
