Wind Power Basics (EPUB)

A Green Energy Guide

Humans have harnessed wind power for centuries. It is the fastest growing source of energy in the world, and by the year 2020 it is projected to supply at least 12 % of global electrical demand.

Wind Power Basics provides a clear understanding of wind and wind energy systems. It examines all aspects of small-scale installations including:
  • Site assessment and economics
  • Turbines
  • Towers and tower installation
  • Batteries and charge controllers
  • Inverters
  • Costs and financial incentives
  • Zoning, permits and system maintenance.
Whether you're considering your own small-scale wind energy system or just want a straightforward, detailed introduction to the benefits and challenges of this rapidly emerging technology, Wind Power Basics is the guide for you.
