Before arriving at a hard estimate for what a wind turbine costs, you must realize that every installation is custom for your site – and a site visit or conversation with one of our Partners is the most effective way to find an actual value. For the quickest path to a hard estimate, please find your nearest UGE Partner on our Partner Map.
The cost of a wind turbine is mostly a question of the options involved.
It is helpful to know:
1. The amount of energy you are looking to produce – how much energy is needed? This is typically measured in kWh on your utility bill.
2. The primary reason you are looking to purchase a turbine – peace of mind? Locking in your energy costs? LEED certification points? Energy independence?
3. Siting: The conditions and landscape of the site itself – is this a roof installation or will you use a tower?
4. Grid configuration: Will you want to store energy in batteries or do you need a system configured for the utility grid? For a quick and easy walkthrough of these options, please take a look at our Build Your Own section.
We assist our customers in understanding their options from requesting the permitting to recouping Government incentives (up to 80% of the total price in some states in the U.S.) through our expansive network of local UGE Partners. UGE solutions are currently installed in over sixty countries around the world and nearly every US state – you can see some of our high-profile installations in our case studies.
Many people curious about the price of a wind turbine are also interested in calculating the time required to see a return on investment (ROI). While this is a relatively simple calculation, it is not a one size fits all equation. To this end, UGE also offers financing and leasing options.
