Wind Turbine Information 

Each customer is different, with different geographic qualities and electricity needs. Thus, each project is assessed for the proper wind turbine model. The turbines we’ve used in past projects have been a 1.5 MW permanent magnet direct-drive generator model, which offers high power-generating efficiency for low wind speeds. View this page for turbine diagrams and information on sizes and sources of our parts.


On-Site and the Grid 

Large industrial consumers receive their power directly from the distribution grid. The local electric utility company measures (and bills for) the power consumed by each customer with an electric meter. This page diagrams how on-site wind generation is different.


Sustainability 

As a fuel source, wind is free and infinite. The installation of just three 1.5 MW wind turbines has a significant positive environmental impact. On this page, you’ll find information about environmental effects of Wind for Industry® projects.


Terminology 

This website uses words and phrases not commonly used outside our industry or even outside One Energy. Review the language presented on this page to keep up to speed and feel confident learning about and talking about – wind.
