The Turbine


Perryville construction costs

Perryville Construction Costs

  • $150K Wind Farm - Start to Finish

  • Financed by Native Village of Perryville

  • Owner operated and maintained (pride of ownership)

  • ROI ~25,000kW-hr/yr @ $0.60 kW-hr ~ 10yrs

  • ROI ~6,000 gal.-fuel/yr @ $4.50 gal. ~ 6yrs (and becoming less every day)


Perryville performance

Perryville Performance

  • Commissioned Nov. ‘08

  • 10 Southwest Windpower Skystream 3.7 Turbines on 70’ Guy Supported Towers

  • 25 kW Wind Farm & 120kW John Deere Diesel Generator (~20% penetration)

  • Class 2 Wind Regime – Avg. 4.60 m/s

  • >65 MwHrs Prod. Since Commissioned


Key benefits

Key Benefits

  • Size and scalability of multiple small wind turbines can provide a better fit to the application
