Micro Wind Turbines Get $1.3 Million From Energy Department

18th August 2014  To: 18th August 2014

A total of $1.3 million in grants aimed at tweaking micro wind turbines and mid-sized wind turbines for greater efficiencies and lower costs issued by the Energy Department. While this round of funding is chump change compared to the big bucks being hurled at solar, wind, geothermal, nuclear, and “clean” coal technology, it could have a significant impact on the distributed energy landscape in the US.

An upward trend for distributed wind energy would also clam up some prognosticators, who have been postulating that the US wind industry is already “mature” with little prospect for market penetration beyond large-scale turbines and wind farms.
