Small-but-Promising High-Wind Sites can be Difficult to Develop


WHI Turbine Systems were designed to overcome many of the common challenges. The resistance to HAWT development is steep in many regions.


Overcoming this resistance can yield a special benefit: government support for building out distributed generation. In addition, in many areas of the world such as the United Kingdom, there are feed-in-tariff provisions that are available for small wind development. WHI Turbine Systems qualify for many of these types of FIT benefits.


Visual blight

Tall, horizontal axis turbines began to populate high-wind sites in the late 80s and early 90s. In many regions around the world, people close to the turbines objected to what they call “visual blight.” The pristine English countryside, according to many, is disrupted by the stark, tall, white turbines spinning and attracting attention. Over the last two decades, resistance to the tall turbines being allowed close to communities has grown. There are policies of local and national government that preclude new turbine installations, regardless of the high-wind resource.
