What is Wind Power Generation?
Wind power or wind energy is the use of wind to provide the mechanical power through wind turbines to turn electric generators and traditionally to do other work, like milling or pumping
How does is work?
When the wind blows past a wind turbine, its blades capture the wind's kinetic energy and rotate, turning it into mechanical energy. This rotation turns an internal shaft connected to a gearbox, which increases the speed of rotation by a factor of 100. That spins a generator that produces electricity.
When is it used?
Wind turbines convert the kinetic energy in the wind into mechanical power. This mechanical power can be used for specific tasks (such as grinding grain or pumping water) or a generator can convert this mechanical power into electricity to power homes, businesses, schools, and the like.
What power (kW) range can i choose from?
Turbines kW range from 2.5kW to 50kW, it all depends on your power consumption and for what it will be used for.
Does the support structure matter?
Monopole Towers are often the ideal choice for XZERES small wind turbines. Monopole are the easiest to install and take up minimal room on your property with their small footprint.
Self Supporting Lattice (SSL) Towers are a great value for desired heights of 80′ and above. SSL towers are tapered, three-legged structures that use less steel than monopole towers but leave an increased footprint.
Hydraulic Tilt-Up towers have all the aesthetics of a monopole tower without the need for a crane which provides the convenience of lowering and raising a tower on demand—an ideal option for coastal or severe weather locations.
