Wind Turbines in Residential Areas
A wind energy system can be an extremely cost-effective renewable home-based energy system.
Can I use wind energy to power my home?
The ThinAir wind turbine requires approximately half an acre of rural land to power an average Kiwi home. It removes the extremely high costs of extending utility power lines to a remote rural residential area. And once installed, it can lower or nullify your electricity bill.
Wind turbines in residential areas offer wind energy which is clean, renewable and localised.
As with solar power systems, wind turbines in residential areas can connect to the power grid and provide significant energy for your home. Any excess power can be fed back to the grid and will generate income. When the wind is not blowing (which it does not, wherever you are), the residence is able to receive electricity generation either from installed solar panels or from being connected to the grid.
The improvement of solar technology has meant that homeowners now benefit from solar power. Wind turbines in residential areas are the ideal complement to solar.
The Thinair Wind Turbine, either alone or as part of a mixed energy system, provides clean, quiet, and cost-efficient power for homes throughout New Zealand and the Pacific. We currently have a waiting list for residential wind power systems. Contact us to be added to our mailing list for updates on upcoming availability in 2022/23.
