If used properly this turbine can pay for itself in 10 years if running at 10% capacity. Turbines of this size cost $22000 to buy from a commercial dealer. We can build ours for under $7000 not including inverters.
Income= 1 KW Hr/Hr X 24 Hr/Day X 364 Days/ Year= 8736 Kw Hr/ Year X 9 cents/ Kw Hr = $786 /Year
Electricity Carbon Emission Factors 1.22 lbsCO2/kWh
Annual CO2 sequestration per forested acre 7333 lbCO2/kWh
Annual CO2 emissions for "average" passenger car 11560 lbsCO2/kWh
Saved CO2= 8736 kWh/ Year X 1.22lbs CO2/kWh=
10657.9 lbs CO2/Year
Life time CO2 Reduction is 106 tons
Equivalent to taking 18 cars off the road for a year or
Sequestration of 29 acres of forested land.
