Ratings of Certified Small Wind Turbine Models– July 2016

The small wind turbine models below are fully certified to the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) Small Wind Turbine Performance and Safety Standard (AWEA Standard 9.1 – 2009), with power performance ratings, sound level ratings and design and duration test compliance.

CertifiedRatingsJan2016b

1 Estimated annual energy production assuming an annual average wind speed of 5 m/s (11.2 mph), a Rayleigh wind speed distribution, sea-level air density, and 100% availability. Actual production will vary depending on site conditions.
2 The sound level that will not be exceeded 95% of the time, assuming an annual average wind speed of 5 m/s, a Rayleigh wind speed distribution, sea-level air density, 100% availability and an observer location 60 m from the rotor center.

3 Power output at 11 m/s (24.6 mph) at standard sea-level conditions. Manufacturers may describe or name their wind turbine models using a nominal power, which may reference output at a different wind speed (e.g. 10 kW Bergey Excel 10).
