Viable Home Wind Generator

New Wind Generator offers viable

 energy source for the home


July
5, 2006 The Skystream 3.7 wind generator is a significant product,
being the very first fully integrated wind generator designed
specifically for the grid-connected residential market. Put simply, the
Skystream produces electricity for a fraction of the cost of current
technologies and is directly connected to the home energy supply,
supplementing power from the electric utility company and enabling
electricity to be produced for sale to the utility or used at a later
date. With a typical cost of US$8,000 to US$10,000 to purchase and
install, the Skystream 3.7 can pay for itself in 5 to 12 years. This
payback period will vary and can be much quicker in locations with
investment rebates. It’s anticipated that Skystream 3.7 will save the
average homeowner US$500 to US$800 per year, based on 4,800 to 6,600
kWh produced per year and a US$0.12/kWh cost of electricity. This
output would provide 40 to 90 percent of an average home’s energy
needs. In states like Hawaii, where the cost of energy and wind speeds
are both high, Skystream 3.7 can pay for itself in less than 4 years.

A
combination of new technologies, developed in collaboration with the
U.S. Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory over a
three year period, has resulted in a product that is the first viable
energy appliance that will wind your power consumption backwards when
plugged into the grid and has the potential to make wind energy for the
homeowner main-stream. With no batteries, Skystream 3.7 connects
directly to the home to supply power. When the wind is not blowing, the
home is powered by the electric utility.
