Small Wind Industry

Small wind, big contribution

Small Wind Industry

The market is currently growing at an accelerated rate in the U.S. which is the largest market in the world and in 2008 accounted for almost 50% of the global sales (AWEA). Growth is, in part, due to:

 

  • An uncapped 30% federal tax credit available to homeowners, businesses, and institutions until December 31, 2016.
  • The establishment of the Small Wind Certification Council (SWCC) who released certification guidelines in February 2010. The certification will be favourable for the industry as it will ease comparison between small wind turbines on the market, ensure consumer protection, and extend industry credibility.
  • Greater public demand.
  • Greater industry investment.
