Since installing the SkyStream 3.7 wind turbines Coble and Sons reduced their electric bill by a third. At average wind speeds of 23mph the SkyStream 3.7 is capable of producing 9kWh (depending on the tower height and other project site considerations)
Through the generous Renewable Energy/Energy Efficiency incentive program offered by the USDA, Coble and Sons ranch received $14,725 to offset the cost of installing the SkyStream 3.7 wind power systems. The great aspect of the Skystream 3.7 wind turbine, is it’s a complete wind power system that includes a built in grid tie inverter and starts generating electricity at wind speeds as low as 8MPH.
The Rural Energy for America Program (REAP) admistered by the USDA will give away $55 million this year, so if your interested in taking advantage of the program take a look at the U.S. Department of Agriculture Rural Development website.
