Grid-Connected Small Wind Electric System

What's on this page?


Wind is created by the unequal heating of Earth’s surface by the sun. Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in wind into clean electricity. When the wind spins the wind turbine’s blades, a rotor captures the kinetic energy of the wind and converts it into rotary motion to drive the generator.

Wind System

A small wind system can be connected to the electric grid through your power provider or it can stand alone (off-grid). This makes small wind electric systems a good choice for rural areas that are not already connected to the electric grid.

Grid tie systems offer the most economical solution to reduce your utility consumption. These systems simply connect to a service panel and either power onsite loads or credit your utility account for energy sold to the grid. Grid tie wind turbine systems are comprised of a turbine, tower, inverter, as well as an optional monitoring package for computers and smart phones.

Small wind turbine equipment and installations qualify for some tax credit depending on the area you are installing the wind tubine. Governments also offer different incentives and grands to help residents and business move towards greener and more sustainable energy source.

Grid Considerations

However, with grid tie connected wind turbine systems, they suffer from the same issue and that is when there is a power failure, the grid tie wind power systems can’t power the home. Only with an off grid connection system like with the Automaxx wind turbine system could you power a home. The off grid connection system stores the electricity into a battery that can be later used during a black out.

With a grid tie connection system installation, normally costs a lot more to instal and maintain. Normally requiring a licensed electricians, government notification and certifications and to maintain the wind turbines also require licensed electrician with knowledge on wind turbines and the grid.

Installing an off grid connection system such as Automaxx wind turbine, you have more control over your wind turbine system and how you manage your power usage. Maintenance on the wind turbine is minimal and requires no certification or notice to government to connect wind turbine system to the grid.
