Question: Like any outside machinery, Skystream is exposed to inclement weather all year round. With icy rain blades are most likely to froze and power will not resume until ice has melted depending how severe it is. Icy rain does not affect the performance of the turbine and should not be a major issue with operation. Skystream was built considering strong wind gusts and tornados. The tower and generator are designed to withstand over 140mph winds. It usually stops producing power with 50-60 mph and does not resume generation until winds have come down to lower levels. I RECOMMEND SHUTTING DOWN YOUR GENERATOR IF YOU ARE AWARE A SEVERE WEATHER SYSTEM IS COMING YOUR WAY, IF YOU ARE NOT HOME THE GENERATOR CAN TAKE CARE OF ITSELF. Systream in Nebraska can produce an average $30-40/ month in electricity. I strongly recommend to invest in energy efficiency first in order to bring your usage down. Heat pump, new fridge and clothes washer, solar water heater and others will cost you less money than a wind turbine and will have a greater return for your investment. GOOD QUESTIONS.

Question: Not with a wind turbine. The only setting available today that works with a transfer switch and is approved by the utility works with solar power only. The main reason for this is the inverter, the wind manufacturers inverters only work when the power lines are up or with a battery bank when the lines are down, not both. With photovoltaics, the inverter communicates with the transfer switch to cut power when the lines are without any supervision from you.

Question: can wind power be used for emergency backup for power outages if the cutoff switch for sppd prevents backfeed during down line times? j,w.

Question: Wind turbines in Haiti? No, unfortunately I am not aware of anyone donating batteries at this time. I get some discounts and special offers but nothing "free of charge" at this time. It sounds like quite a project, Roger. Best of luck!

Question: Without net metering (and this applies to Southern Power), They will install two different meters: one for your house (already installed) and another meter for your wind generator. At the end of the month, the reading from the wind generator for example is 300 Kwh. Southern Power will pay 2 cents per Kwh so that makes (300Kwh X $0.02)6 dollars total. With net metering (NPPD customers), 300 Kwh accounts for $28 at current retail prices. I hope this answer your question. If you need more info, call Scott Welk at Southern Power 384-2350

Question: with net metering, the energy coming from your generator goes first into the electrical panel and is used at home first(even before it reaches the meter or the lines)so the meter just charges you for what you are pulling from the line.

Question: Without net metering, is electricity produced fed into the customers line after the meter or does it go thru the deduct meter for the wholesale value for payback? It seems to me that if it goes into the customers line after the meter, the electricity produced and used by the customer would then have the same value as the charged by the power company. Talking to an attorney that works with large wind farms, I find that in Nebraska, sales tax is charged. This would be another area for an insentive for wind power, if sales taxes were not required.

Question: You are absolutely right! We need to tell our state senators to pass a bill that supports net metering througout the whole state. By offering retail price, customers will have more interest in invest in wind generators and solar panels. We also need to ask our state congress to pass a Renewable portfolio standard (RPS) demanding utilities to offer money incentives for customers to generate their own power at home. Here is a link to access your local state senator http://www.unicam.state.ne.us/senators/district37.htm (Kearney county). You can also go to www.powerupnebraska.org and sign a petition to call for 20% of our electricity to come from renewable energy. There is also a net metering petition at www.nebraskawind.com Thank you for your comment!

Question: I am wondering if any of our rural state senators are aware that the SPPD (REA) does not payback based on net metering, but on wholesale price. This makes a big difference in the overall payoff of a windgenerator.

Question: The price of steel and fuel(transportation) have increased the pricetag to install the Skystream wind turbine in the last month. The new price for the skystream(parts and labor included)is: On a 34ft. tower: $14,000 On a 45ft. tower: $16,000 On a 50ft. tower: $17,000 On a 60ft. tower: $19,000 Prices include all parts and labor needed to install the wind generator. Note that these prices were calculated for the Kearney and surroundings, if you live outside this area price could be higher.
