Before Dan Miller installed his first NPS 100kW turbine, Miller Sonshine Acres Farm was a bustling dairy operation with over 2800 milking cows and the Farm’s electricity bills were $6000 per month. Miller knew that if he wanted his business to be sustainable, he would have to find a way to control costs. After his first turbine was installed in 2014, Miller’s electricity bills dropped to $2000 per month – a savings of over 65%.
Those impressive results spurred him to purchase and install a second Northern Power wind turbine, which has been operational since December 2016.
In just the first 6 months of 2017, Miller’s two turbines produced over 180,000 kilowatt-hours of energy. When valued at the current market price of 10 cents per kilowatt-hour, Miller’s energy production translates to a savings value of over $35,000 per year.
