100 Kilowatt Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

General Specifications – General Turbine Design Features


A 100kW wind turbine produces enough energy to power 15+ homes. These are not residential turbines but are community-sized wind turbine that produce the right amount of power for school and university campuses, residential developments, farms, municipalities, and a variety of businesses ranging from injection molding factories to extrusion houses. They can also be used in small wind farms for direct grid hookup.
