US Federal government is now behind the QUALITY small wind turbines. On January 20th, The U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has issued Notice 2015-4 providing new performance and quality standards that require certification of small wind turbines in order to qualify for the 30% federal Investment Tax Credit (ITC). Small Wind Turbine like Osiris 10, IEC61400-2 and AWEA 9.1 certified, can compete on a fair ground with other quality wind turbines.
The small wind industry still exists after recent tough years. The main reason is that we can still find many people who love small wind turbines in such a big land. Many people still feel proud to have a small wind turbine erected on their land.
Not everyday is sunny day, sometimes it is a windy day or even a snowy day. That’s nature. The energy shall come from different sources including small wind turbine.
