For Villages, farmers, small businesses, and public facilities, a wind turbine is a smart investment that can provide power to pump drinking water or irrigation from a nearby stream or well. If the water is contaminated it can also be used to power a water filtration System. By assembling the units on site, it can help support the local community by manufacturing jobs. At the same time it will help clean the air, slow climate change, and move us towards energy independence.
For remote sites without grid power, a wind turbine can significantly lower operating costs over a diesel generator and provide sustainable power where the power grid cannot reach.
There are approximately 2 billion people around the world without electric service. They live their life in one continuous, never-ending blackout. And, the most amazing thing is that people are being born at a faster rate than they are being electrified. Many “electrified” villages around the world have diesel generators that run only 3-6 hours a day. They have electricity during the evening only, so they don’t have power during the day for schools or industry. Often, the homes have no light switches. When the diesel generator is on their lights are on; when its off their lights are off.
The technologies of wind, solar, storage, and power conversion have matured greatly over the last twenty years. It is now quite reasonable, and common, to use wind power to provide electricity to areas not served by the power grid.
Wind power systems can often be less expensive to install than grid-extension and less costly to operate than diesel generators.
