Small wind is defined as wind turbines with a capacity rating of less than or equal to 100 kW. Turbines in this category range in size from smaller than 1 kW for off-grid applications to 100-kW turbines that can provide village power. Fifty-four small turbine models are offered commercially in the United States for applications including homes, schools, commercial and industrial facilities, telecommunications, farms and ranches, and communities. By the end of 2012, more than 150,000 small wind turbines were installed in the United States. Today, U.S. manufacturers account for more than 70 percent of the U.S. small turbine market.
