Distributed wind generator supplier Southwest Windpower unveiled a small wind turbine for commercial and residential use, the Skystream 600, which it claims is the “most efficient power grid-connected turbine in its class, providing an average of 7,400 kWh of clean, low-cost energy per year per household in 12 mph average annual wind speeds.” The company calls it the first fully smart grid–enabled wind turbine because, with its Skyview system, users can monitor exactly how much energy the wind turbine is producing from anywhere Internet access is available. It includes a larger blade design, enhanced software, and an improved integrated inverter. (http://www.windenergy.com)
