Posted By on July 6, 2006

Skystream 3.7Southwest Windpower has introduced a new residential small wind generator called the Skystream 3.7â„¢ that can produce 4,800 to 6,600 kWh of energy to the average home. The unit is designed to be affordable costing around $10,000 and is intended for ‘on the grid’ power users. In average installations the residential unit should pay for itself in 5 to 12 years by offsetting power purchase from the grid with clean, renewable power. According to the companies co-founder Andrew Kruse in a press release, “Skystream will change the way many Americans power their homes and take control of their energy costs. Wind energy for the individual homeowner is finally main-stream.”

The company, Southwest Windpower is the world’s largest producer of small wind generators (400 to 3000 watts). The 20-year old company has been a pioneer in the development of wind technology and has produced over 90,000 generators that provide power to residential homes, remote cabins, telecom transmitters, offshore platforms, water pumping and sailboats.
