How much wind do you need?

In our “Is Wind for You?" series we will discuss frequently asked questions and concerns when it comes to purchasing and installing a personal wind turbine.

What’s the use of a wind turbine for your home without wind? Even if you live in a city know for its windy climate (i.e. the Windy City), it’s important to make sure that your turbine will have consistent wind to produce and supply energy. In order for your turbine to be most effective, the area you live in should have at least a 9 MPH or 4 meters per second average wind speed. You can find the general average wind speed for your area here. However, we do recommend contacting a local dealer to get a proper evaluation. They will be the most familiar with local conditions and can answer any questions you may have about purchasing a turbine.
