There are many types of wind turbines on the market, but which ones are truly homeowner friendly? Our selection of wind turbine energy generators only includes turbines you can install directly on your roof or optional pole.

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines - VAWT's

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines - VAWT's

VAWT's or Vertical Axis Wind Turbines are an economical alternative for residential and small commercial applications where wind power can now be harnessed at lower wind speeds and without expensive towers.

Vertical Axis Wind Turbines, VAWT's are easy to spot because their turbine axis points straight up, or vertical, thus, Vertical Axis Wind Turbine.

Due to the unique design of their vertically installed blades, VAWT's are less affected by turbulent air than standard horizontal axis wind turbines or HAWT's. This makes VAWT's better suited for residential areas where obstacles such as other houses, buildings and trees generally disturb the airflow.

Blade Tip Power System - BTPS

Blade Tip Power System - BTPS

The gearless Blade Tip Power System (BTPS) is a breakthrough in wind energy systems for home or business. The gearless Honeywell Wind Turbine measures six feet wide, weighs 170 lbs and is able to produce 2752 kWh per year with 13 MPH winds.

According to the National Wind Technology Center, more than 80 percent of the U.S. residential areas experience winds less than 10 mph (16 km/h), 90 percent of the time. Standard VAWT's and HAWT's require a minimum of 7.5 mph (12 km/h) to begin producing energy. The Honeywell Wind Turbine's breakthrough technology can produce energy in as little wind as 2 mph (3 km/h) and can perform in wind speeds up to 42 mph (67.5 km/h), allowing consumers who experience low wind speeds to seriously consider wind as an energy source.
