Off-grid Turkey rooftop wind turbine


 

Objectives

· Protect natural state of the land, no visible electrical wires

· To reduce high cost of electricity and to go off-grid

· To create a visible demonstration project

Project Requirements

· Less costly solution than running electric lines to the site

· Adequate energy production using Turkeys wind resources

Site Details

· Average annual wind speed: 6.5 m/s

· Install date: March 2003

Solution

· 1000w rooftop wind turbine

· All in one controller

· Each on 8m towers

· 24 meters of cabling for each turbine

Benefits

· Hummer 1000W produced 2,920kWh energy (annual average)

· House fully powered by small wind generator system

· Completely reduces dependence on utility company

· Public demonstration of wind
