Can I mount a Skystream small wind turbine on my roof?

Skystream 3.7 Monopole TowerSkystream is designed to be installed on a freestanding or guyed tower ranging from 33 - 70 feet (9 - 21 m) high, mounted on a concrete foundation. Rooftop mounting is generally not recommended for wind turbines because of the turbulence created by the building. For AIR turbines, we do sell roof mounting kits, but we recommend these only if tower mounting is not feasible.

As mentioned in our previous blog post regarding siting for your personal wind turbine, the ideal location for a wind turbine is approximately 20 feet, or six meters, above any surrounding object within a 250-foot or 76-meter radius. These measurements generally mean that your property should be at least half an acre.
