BWEA has launched a new Small Wind Turbine (SWT) performance and safety standard.
The standard will allow consumers, wishing to install small wind systems, to compare products on a like for like basis. It a result of extended testing of turbines in operational conditions. Consumers will be able to compare power outputs and noise, and have assurance of quality, as to pass the standard turbines would have had to pass a rigorous 2000+ hours testing. The Standard was first published by BWEA in March 2007 and is linked to the Government managed Micro-generation Certification Scheme. Following further work by BWEA members and consultations with Government, the Standard has now been updated.
