Residential Wind Turbine



A typical home uses approximately 10,837 kilowatt-hours (kWh) of electricity per year (about 903 kWh per month). Depending on the average wind speed of the area, a Vortexis turbine rated in the range of 500 W to 1.5 kW would meet the requirements to make a significant contribution to demand. Now, even more cost effective, a 1.0 kW Vortexis Hybrid PV (solar panel) wind turbine will meet the needs of a home requiring 300 kWh per month in a location with a 14 MPH (6.26 meters per second) annual average wind speed.

A Vortexis Wind Turbine Power System can provide you with a practical and economical source of electricity if:

  • Your property has a good wind resource.
  • Your local zoning codes or covenants allow wind turbines.
  • You can determine how much electricity you need or want to produce.
  • It works for you economically (you may be eligible for state/utility or federal incentives).
  • Your average electricity bills are $150 per month or more or you don't have access to utility grid power.
