Off Grid Power Solutions: Why Wind Power
If you’ve read our previous piece on Wind Turbines, you’ll know that wind power can be an extremely effective option for powering your off-grid home. Paired with solar solutions, wind turbines can keep you up and running year-round. Why? Read on to learn more.
A great investment
Like their solar counterparts, wind turbines offer significant returns on your initial investment. Where panels may see a slight reduction in power output due to shorter days with less sunlight, the wind turbine will offer a triple charge even in the absence of sun. Windy winter days will work to your advantage as well, giving you more power in the bank!
Simple to set up
A common misconception about wind turbines is that all units are big, cumbersome, and tedious to install. This is not the case! At Fire Pit Fundamentals we carry several units that are small and easily placed on top of tiny homes or off-grid structures. Once in place, the turbines will provide continuous, cost-effective energy to power your home.
Easily paired with other sources of energy
If you live in an area where the wind may not be your most reliable resource, you can easily tie in your wind turbine via an inverter, and use other power sources including solar panels or portable batteries to provide an extra boost. The best way to know if wind power will be sufficient on its own is to carefully evaluate your climate, as well as your usual power consumption. If you’re not sure how to do so accurately, we can help!
