First residential VAWT in San Diego

the very first vertical axis wind turbine has been installed at a residence in Jamul, Calif.

Windsun Energy Systems has completed the very first vertical axis wind turbine in San Diego County. We installed a WE POWER 3.4k FALCON series wind turbine in Jamul in December. This grid-tied unit should off-set the customers' electric consumption by 50% to 75% annually. The site was ideal for a VAWT as the hills helped to direct the wind at our turbine. After only a week of operation the turbine has been operating every day, sometimes as early as 5 in the morning! The customer reports complete silence from the turbine even in 20 mph winds!

San Diego County building officials were very helpful in the permitting of this unit and almost as excited as we were at the commissioning. With luck, we will get more cities to adopt small wind regulations and guidelines.
