WindPower for Domestic or Commercial Projects

Wind energy has been used for pumping water and milling grain for hundreds of years. More recently, wind energy is also being used for electricity generation.

Developing countries can take advantage of wind power on a small scale, both for irrigation (wind pumps) and for generation of electricity (wind generators).

Small wind turbine systems, with a capacity ranging from 50 W to 10 kW and rotor diameter ranging from about 0.5 m to 7 m, are primarily used for charging batteries.

The batteries are then be used for supplying energy to houses, farms, remote telecommunication equipment, or isolated commercial projects.

Wind energy systems can also operate in parallel with diesel generators or solar PV systems.

Converting wind energy into electricity is clean, renewable and sustainable - wind supply will never run out!

If you decide wind energy isn't for you, talk to us about a solar-electric system.

The Australian Govt. Support for small-scale renewable energy systems

The Renewable Energy Target

The Australian Government is supporting the deployment of more renewable energy throughout Australia with the Renewable Energy Target (RET) scheme. The RET scheme will help ensure that the equivalent of at least 20 per cent of Australia's electricity supply comes from renewable sources by 2020.

The RET uses a mechanism of tradeable renewable energy certificates which are created by eligible sources of renewable energy.

The RET scheme operates as two separate parts:

  • the Large-scale Renewable Energy Target (LRET), which supports the deployment of renewable energy projects like wind farms, and commercial solar and geothermal power stations, and

  • the Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme (SRES), which provides support for installations of small renewable energy systems such as rooftop solar panels and solar water heaters.

Small-scale Renewable Energy Scheme

The SRES has been designed to assist households, small business and community groups with the upfront cost of installing small-scale renewable energy systems through certificates, called small-scale technology certificates (STCs), which may be created for eligible installations.

Small-scale renewable energy systems that may be eligible to create STCs include:

  • solar panels
  • small wind turbines
  • micro hydroelectric systems
  • solar water heaters, and
  • heat pump water heaters.
