Why wind power?
Domestic or individual wind power, also called small-scale wind power, combines the advantages associated with renewable energy production while being the cheapest clean energy to produce. Its 98% recyclability rate makes it one of the most environmentally friendly renewable energies on the market. The expression refers to wind turbines with a power of less than 100 kilowatts, either autonomous or connected to the power grid. The price is quickly compensated for by the savings made.
The aim of small-scale wind power is to meet minimal needs by supplying electrical equipment on a lasting basis. Domestic wind turbines are mainly used in rural areas and are generally accompanied by solar panels. A mini wind turbine can guarantee the energy autonomy of a small home (caravan) or a sailing boat, or provide for half the electricity consumption of a house. A standard small wind turbine comprises two or three blades and provides electrical power ranging from 300 W to 30 kW.
Small urban wind turbines are built vertically and have been specially created for the urban environment. The power of a vertical-axis wind turbine can range up to 10 kW. In towns, the power of the wind is weakened but turbulent. The directions and speed of air flows vary rapidly, thus creating a particularly unstable environment. The greatest urban turbulence occurs at roof level, which can be explained by the deviation of the air flows, itself caused by the collision between the hot air on the south face of buildings and the cold air on their north face. Small wind turbines, and wind turbines in general, are a vehicle for communication which allows people to display their commitment to the values of sustainable development.
