Urban Green Energy has become a world leader in small wind energy by developing the most innovative products available. On a small scale, the characteristics of wind vary greatly and show few similarities to the ones faced by large horizontal axis wind turbines on wind farms. Because of the high cost of tall towers and local permitting requirements, small wind turbines are typically placed closer to the ground than the 30 story-height seen on wind farms. The winds found at these heights switch directions frequently and are generally of lower quality than those found on a wind farm – situations generally more suitable for vertical axis turbines.
