|An environmentally friendly power generation source, these windmills are usually set-up in areas of high speed, constant winds. These wind power offers advanced-technology products that let homeowners and businesses generate their own clean power. These turbines are also used for off-grid homes, for rural electrification, and to boost the performance of solar electric systems. They generate electric power and feed the battery source when the blades turn. There are small generators at the base of the blades that turn mechanical energy into electrical energy. Steady winds without turbulence are a must for maximum power. Electricity produced by wind generation can be used directly, as in water pumping applications, or it can be stored in batteries for household use when needed. Wind generators can be used alone, or they may be used as part of a hybrid system. Hybrid systems are especially useful for winter backup of home systems where cloudy weather and windy conditions occur simultaneously.
The most important decision when considering wind power is determining whether or not your chosen site has enough wind to generate the power for your needs, whether it is available consistently, and if it is available in the season that you need it. To get the most out of the wind you need to have your machine up in clear air.The higher your wind generator the less it will be negatively affected by turbulent wind and the more power it will produce.
