Small Wind

Using Wind to Power Your Home, Farm, Building, or Business

Commit to a Cleaner Future

Thanks to continued innovation of new technologies, wind power has become a viable energy source. Today, large commercial wind sites are common, but there are also applications for smaller wind turbines at residential, industrial, agricultural, and educational sites. Small wind energy systems allow farmers, individual landowners, and businesses to take control of their carbon footprints and preserve their land for the benefit of the whole community.

The New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) offers a unique combination of collaborative partnership, technical expertise, and financial support designed to help New Yorkers explore wind power as a cost-effective and energy-efficient alternative to replace some, or all, of purchased electricity. 

Make the Change

If you are interested in a wind energy system for your home, farm, institution, or business, the first step is to get in touch with NYSERDA. NYSERDA’s programs help New Yorkers save money and energy, while promoting a cleaner, more-energy diverse and sustainable future. NYSERDA can provide you with all the support and information you need, including a list of wind system installers in your area who participate in NYSERDA’s cash incentive program.  A wind system installer can be your partner in the journey from information gathering and site assessment, all the way through to installation and post-installation monitoring.
