Energy production

The Gaia-Wind turbine is a highly productive and quiet running MCS certified turbine, designed to operate in moderate wind speeds.

Our turbine's large blade design means more renewable energy collected from the wind, and more electricity.

The Gaia-Wind 133 turbine is one of the most productive small wind turbines in the world.

The table below outlines an energy comparison of wind turbines in the world eligible for the UK Feed-In tariff.

All the above data is based on publicly available Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) data. MCS data is independently tested according to strict protocols and offers the only true like for like comparison of small wind turbines in the UK.

C&F (CF20 and CF15) - MCS certified in January 2012. AEP figures have not been released by the manufacturer.

Bigger blades are better

The most important factor in assessing the performance of a wind turbine is the swept area. This is the size of the area covered when the rotor blades turn – the bigger the blades, the bigger the swept area, which results in more energy generated. 

The Gaia-Wind 133 wind turbine has a swept area of 133m², compared with the swept area of similar sized turbines which are less than half this figure.

The result - Bigger blades = bigger production

In recent tests conducted by the US Department of Energy’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory, the Gaia-Wind 133 wind turbine outperformed its nearest competitor by a factor of more than 2 to 1.

A Gaia-Wind turbine generating 30,000 units of green electricity per year, will offset around 17 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This is sufficient to erase the carbon footprint of the average 4 person household.

Generate additional income from tariffs and incentives

Tariffs and incentives vary the world over. The UK Government operate a Feed in Tariff of 26.7p per kWhr while in the USA rebates and incentives are developed locally and vary in nature.
