The SkyStream 3.7

Wind Turbine Information

The Skystream 3.7 is the first compact, user-friendly, all-inclusive residential wind generator (with controls and inverter built in) designed to provide quiet, clean electricity in very low winds. Skystream 3.7, developed by Southwest Windpower in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), is the newest generation in small wind technology for residential and commercial applications. Skystream 3.7 has a 2.4 kW rating and is the first fully integrated small wind generator specifically designed for the utility-connected market. Skystream 3.7 is designed for homeowners and businesses looking to reduce or eliminate their monthly electric bills. Skystream 3.7 uses an innovative 12 foot (3.7 m) rotor and produces approximately 400 kWh per month in a 12 mph (5.4 m/s) wind. The initial prototype has been operating at the U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Colorado for four years and has undergone extensive performance, reliability and duration testing in accordance with internationally accepted testing standards. Early adopters nationally are reporting up to 50 percent savings on their energy bills.

Reasonable Cost

Southwest Windpower invested heavily in tooling to reduce component cost. This makes it possible to sell Skystream 3.7 at a very low price, compared to other wind generators and solar photovoltaic (PV) systems. Depending on the tower costs, wind speed average, tax incentives and escalating electricity costs, the Skystream 3.7 can pay for itself in about 6 years. The wind turbine should save 40% to 80% of a home’s energy bills.

Got Solar? Get Wind!

Renewable wind energy is an excellent compliment to solar energy. A wind turbine produces electricity when photovoltaic panels (PV) cannot.  Strive for the many benefits of the Net Zero Energy Home by adding a Skystream 3.7™ Wind Turbine.  wind power benefits

 

Windward ...
"Price was a leading factor. Actual projected savings and payback on our investment were also big concerns. Aesthetics also played a part in our decision and we thought the Skystream structure itself was very attractive to look at. We felt our neighbors would not consider it an eyesore either. Of course, we want to try to help the environment, what with all the news reports all about going "green" and we wanted to be a part of that movement. We also believe that if/when we ever retire and sell the house, having a wind turbine up and running and saving on electric bills would be a big plus to any future owners." - Nancy from Texas
