How To Install Wind Turbine

Wind turbines are generally more suitable for properties with extensive land area, e.g. on farms or rural locations, as this allows larger wind turbines to be installed, which have greater efficiencies. However in urban or small suburban homes small scale wind turbines with rotors less than 1m in diameter may be installed. Fixing of wind turbines should be undertaken by certified installers, and carried out with appropriate planning permissions and Building Control approval, both of which will demand exact standards be reached prior to completion; with focus on health and safety and their visual impact.

Once up and running, wind turbines produce 100% zero pollution; they are one of the most environmentally friendly sources of energy available at present time. This means the local supplies of water, air, and soil are not contaminated with chemicals or other toxins. In contrast, coal fired power plants, nuclear power plants, and incineration power plants all produce some levels of air, soil, and water pollution.

Economic viability: In general, wind turbine farms can compete with other fossil fuel energies in terms of installed costs. They are also shielded from potential rises in conventional energy (natural gas, coal, and oil) prices that will inevitably make these energies too expensive for the construction industry. In fact, wind energy now costs between 4 and 6 cents per kilowatt-hour, making it one of the most economically viable renewable energy solutions.

Inexhaustible and renewable: The wind blows in every corner of the earth and can produce power in a variety of ways without generating greenhouse gas emissions and without fear of supplies running low. It is inexhaustible therefore entirely renewable.

Wind turbines have a low embodied energy, requiring minimal manufacturing, transport and installation costs, in comparison to other alternative energy forms such as solar panels and Combined Heat and Power (CHP).

Compared to solar energy, the wind can (depending on weather conditions) generate electricity constantly, 24 hours a day, throughout a windy night or on a cloudy day, which then can be stored for later use. Wind power is a worldwide recognized symbol of green energy, the use of which indicates the user is environmentally conscious.
Many alternative forms of wind turbines are available, which unlike decentralized power plants, can provide energy for construction companies. Wind turbines are available anywhere, allowing construction projects in rural remote areas, where there is no electricity or other sources of energy, to progress smoothly. This further encourages energy independence.

Additionally, Construction companies can make money by selling their excess electricity to local energy suppliers hence significantly reducing running costs.  (This article is excerpt.)
