Farm scale wind power

Synopsis 

Farm scale wind turbines for electricity generation have broad potential application in rural Australia. Farmers can take advantage of existing land to install turbines and generate local electricity. The power generated can be used on farm, stored in batteries, or sold back to the network. Smaller wind turbines also can be located on building roofs or walls. Wind power may be a good solution if the farm is located at a place with a high wind resource and the cost of installing a connection point is not prohibitive.
