Small wind turbines can contribute to the supply of electricity from renewable resources. They have attracted great interest, especially in the agricultural sector. On the one hand, the target can be an economical one: producing an as large as possible share of the electricity consumed on the farm and thus becoming more independent of electricity price developments. On the other hand, such a move offers a contribution to climate protection. Following a short overview on site selection, electricity yields and the legal framework this article discusses the profitability of small wind turbines taking into account various exemplary site conditions. It becomes clear that small wind turbines may be profitable through their production of electricity that otherwise would have to be purchased. Preconditions for this are favourable site conditions and a strong temporal correlation of electricity production and consumption. Source
