WIND POWER

Arkansas Wind & Solar installs wind turbines for off-grid applications and high-wind areas in Eastern Oklahoma.

These packages include the latest technology Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines. The turbines are American made and are mounted on a guyed or free standing tower up to 70 feet tall. 

  • Grid-Tie inverter and installation included.
  • 3kW, 10kW or, 20kW systems available.

HOW IT WORKS

WIND TURBINE COSTS

The federal government is currently offering a 30% tax incentive for wind turbine installations. This helps to offset the cost of installation. For a 3kW system:

  • Installed Price:        $32,000
  • 30% Tax Incentive: - $9,600
  • Customer Cost:    $22,400

Please call about the costs for larger systems.

WHAT TO EXPECT WITH YOUR WIND TURBINE INSTALLATION

There are few typical wind installations. Each one is different due to height, terrain, wind turbine type, and so on. With any installation, the first thing that must be done is to verify that the site is capable of producing the desired energy output. Once this is done, and our customer has decided to move forward, our crew proceeds with the installation.

Site preparation and foundation construction anchor the wind turbine tower securely.

The wind turbine is assembled on the ground, and then raised into place on the foundation. Guy wires are secured as needed.

The Inverter is mounted (if required) to convert the current from DC to AC, and wiring is run to the existing AC power source.

The system is checked to verify proper performance.

Finally, our crew works with the customer and utility company to complete the grid tie procedure.

NET METERING

Arkansas has a yearly net metering law. This means that your utility company will allow you, as a homeowner or business, to connect your renewable energy system to their meter at no charge. By doing this, you will only have to pay for the net electricity you use.

For example: If you produce 10,000kWh in a given year, and use 15,000kWh, you will only pay for 5,000kWh. Excess energy from the renewable energy source is sent into the utility grid, and pulled back when you need it, allowing you to use the utility grid as a battery.

Net metering is available for both wind turbine and solar panel energy systems.
