Wind Power
Wind Generators and Wind Turbines

Wind power is the conversion of wind energy into more useful forms, usually electricity using wind turbines. In 2005, worldwide capacity of wind-powered generators was 58,982 megawatts; although it currently produces less than 1% of world-wide electricity use, it accounts for 23% of electricity use in Denmark, 6% in Germany and approximately 8% in Spain. Globally, wind power generation more than quadrupled between 1999 and 2005.

Most modern wind power is generated in the form of electricity by converting the rotation of turbine blades into electrical current by means of an electrical generator. In windmills (a much older technology) wind energy is used to turn mechanical machinery to do physical work, like crushing grain or pumping water.

Wind power is used in large scale wind farms for national electrical grids as well as in small individual turbines for providing electricity to rural residences or grid-isolated locations.

Wind energy is ample, renewable, widely distributed, clean, and mitigates the greenhouse effect if used to replace fossil-fuel-derived electricity.

Go Where the Wind Takes You
Off the grid doesn't have to mean out of luck. AIR small wind turbines allow you to harness nature’s energy to power your day-to-day needs practically anywhere on Earth with sustained winds. The best-selling small wind generators in the world, AIR turbines are ideal for RVs, remote cabins and hybrid systems. For sailboats and offshore platforms, please click here.

Bringing the power of the sun and wind together. Naturally.
Combining wind power with solar is ideal for helping you meet your energy needs. In general, cloudy days tend to produce more wind and calm days more sun, so combining the two creates a perfect complementary system for keeping your batteries charged. AIR systems are ideal wind turbines for hybrid systems with solar to offset those cloudy or wintery periods. Choose from 12, 24 and 48 Volts models according to your energy needs.
