Innovations in aerodynamics and fluid dynamics make micro wind turbines a practical and affordable means of on-site distributed power generation.
Wind power is not well understood as a viable option for generating electricity in homes or businesses. While distributed wind power can provide long-term energy security for consumers of electricity, small-scale wind turbines have suffered in the past from several technical hurdles. Recent design innovations have overcome these hurdles, making on-site generation of wind power both technically feasible and economically attractive. With the ability to provide clean, quiet, efficient and more reliable on-site generation, micro wind power is poised for growth in the consumer market.
