Maui Wind Turbines

The numbers make a lot of sense to go wind!



Costs, rates and incentives vary state to state. Please contact us for a quote at your location. This is an example of an installation on Maui where costs are higher.

Tax incentives

Just recently the available tax credits have become very generous. The Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008, was passed which included a new federal-level investment tax credit for qualified small wind turbines. That bill was improved upon with the 2009 Stimulus Package, which removed “cost caps.” This means you can receive a federal tax credit for 30% of Skystream’s installed costs (after any state incentives).

A Hawaii State tax credit is available for 20% of installed price ($1,500 cap). Together the federal and state tax credits equal $7,050 (based on a $20,000 install).



With Hawaiian electrical rates of $.42 kWh (Oct 08), Skystream’s payback, or the time it takes to recover the cost of the wind generator is only 6.4 years. After that period, the unit will generate free electricity for the next 14 years or longer. If the electricity rates increase, as they have historically, the payback will be realized sooner.

ROI – Return on Investment

The return on investment (ROI) is 10.5%. When electricity rates increase then the ROI will also increase. This is an amazing return on investment for a home improvement.

If a number of people (5) within the same area order at the same time we are able to offer additional savings. Due to substantial foundation costs, the overall cost of each windmill may be reduced if multiple sites are excavated and foundations constructed at the same time. Shipping costs may also be reduced if multiple units are shipped together. We are happy to pass along these savings directly to our customers. So, talk to your neighbors!

Super Efficient Power

Maui Wind Turbines

Designed to produce energy in very low winds, Skystream 3.7™ begins producing power in an 8 mph breeze with full output achieved at 29 mph. Skystream may produce 400 kWh per month. That is 40 - 80% of the electrical needs of most homes.  wind turbine info

"Since installing our Skystream 3.7 in July 2007, combined with conservation measures, we are purchasing about one third to one half of the power that we were in the comparable period a year ago.
