Wind for diesel grids: Diesel grid operators turning to wind power

Whether you are an electric utility or business located in a remote area, if you generate power using diesel-fueled engine generator sets, then you share the concerns of an unstable future. Your business model’s long term efficacy is challenged on a daily basis by rising fuel costs, fuel transportation and storage issues, and diesel generator maintenance. At the same time, you — and the community you serve — have environmental considerations that drive you to seek clean, renewable alternatives. Until recently, wind power has been overlooked because of concerns about grid stability. With the advent of new technology found in the NPS 100 wind turbine, diesel grid owner/operators can safely and effectively add wind power to their grid without complex system design enhancements.
