U.S. Small Wind Turbine Market Grows 78% in 2008

The U.S. market for small wind turbines with capacities of 100 kilowatts and less, grew 78 percent in 2008, with a total of 17.3 megawatts of new installed capacity, according to a new study from The American Wind Energy Association. About 38.7 MW of new small wind capacity was installed globally in 2008.

AWEA recently reported that more than 2,800 WM of wind energy was installed in the United States over the first quarter of 2009, which is enough to power 816,000 homes. The largest segment of the market is residential (1-10 kW), where growth was also driven by investment and manufacturing economies of scale, together with rising residential electricity prices and a heightened public awareness of wind energy.

    My website is about researching renewable energy systems for the individual and small business to use. I want to inform people how to use the many natural resources available to all of us. I think that by combining the use of small home wind turbines, biofuels, and home solar energy systems with the commercial energy companies we can help cut the growing economic and energy crisis for both individuals and the energy producing companies.

    I think your site is a great resource. I am going to subscribe to it and use it quite often. I would like to ask you to look at my website and let me know what you think. I am just starting and would appreciate your comments. I would also like to ask you to create a link to my site if possible, I will certainly use yours.
