Wind Power for Homeowners
A wind energy system can help protect homeowners against electric power price increases. Wind energy systems help reduce our dependence on fossil fuels, and they are nonpolluting. If your home is in a remote location, a small wind energy system can help you avoid the high costs of having the your utility company install power lines to your site.
Wind Power for Agriculture
Investing in wind energy can help farmers and rural land owners can achieve security against rising energy costs while receiving long-term financial returns. Harvesting wind resources can help farmers thrive when margins for crops are tight.
Wind Power for Business and Municipalities
Investing in wind energy can help companies and municipalities achieve security against rising energy costs while receiving long-term financial returns. Given the amount of electricity your business or community needs, and the wind resources you have on site, your business or community can directly benefit from a wind turbine.
Residential Wind Power
A small wind turbine, like other capital improvements, should increase the value of your home. By being able to tell a prospective buyer that your electric bills are almost $0, the value of the installed turbine may be an attractive incentive.A wind turbine can typically lower your utility bill by 50-90%. It is not uncommon for homeowners with total electric homes to have monthly utility bills of $8-$15 for part of the year. In northern parts of the U.S., where less air conditioning is used, electric bills can be very low all year. Most homes typically use 1,000-2,000 kW hours of electricity per month. Depending upon the average wind speed in your area this would require a wind turbine rated in the range 5-15 kilowatts.
The most common selling residential wind turbine in the U.S. is 10 kW. They typically have a rotor diameter of 23 feet and are normally installed on 80 or 100 foot towers.A wind turbine is relatively large and it is not suitable for city usage or small-lot suburban homes. We recommend a property size of one acre or more. The feasibility of a wind system is determined by the average wind speed in the area, the availability of tax credits, rebates and the cost of electricity. We generally recommend that you have at least a 10 mph average wind speed and be paying 10¢/kilowatt-hour or more for electricity.

XZERES Wind designs, manufactures, and distributes high quality distributed small wind turbines (2.4kW -10kW). XZERES Wind offers wind energy solutions. Our grid connected and off grid wind turbine systems, which consist of our 2.4kW and 10kW devices and related equipment, are utilized for electrical power generation for applications and markets such as residential, micro-grid based rural electrification, agricultural, small business, rural electric utility systems, as well as other private, corporate infrastructure and government applications.
Our wind turbine systems are focused on distributed energy, where a specific machine’s energy output is largely or entirely used on-site where the equipment is installed, as well as grid connected applications. While many of our customers take advantage of their local net-metering rules within the United States and Feed In Tariffs that are often available in Europe and Internationally (to sell power back to the grid), our wind power systems are not dependent on transmission needs to carry the energy produced to another location.
