Eligible Small Wind Turbines

Only approved turbines are eligible for incentives under NYSERDA’s Small Wind Turbine Program.

NYSERDA is a member of the Interstate Turbine Advisory Council (ITAC), established under the Clean Energy States Alliance. ITAC has created a Unified List of Wind Turbines, for turbines with a nameplate rating of less than or equal to 100 kW. NYSERDA requires turbines of this size to be on ITAC's Unified List to be eligible for incentives. NYSERDA reserves the right to impose additional restrictions or relax ITAC’s requirements dependent on program needs.

For turbines with a nameplate rating of greater than 100 kW, the Small Wind Turbine Program Funding Opportunity provides the requirements for eligibility and an Eligible Wind Turbine Application Form. Only commercially-available wind turbines with a proven record for power performance, reliability, safety, and acoustics will be considered for funding. The following table lists the wind turbines that are eligible for a NYSERDA incentive.

Turbines with a nameplate rating of greater than 2 MW are not eligible for incentives under this program.
