Independent Tests: Vertical Axis Wind Turbine vs Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine

DIY Wind

There’s a growing debate over which type of wind turbine reigns supreme: vertical axis wind turbines (VAWT) or horizontal axis wind turbines (HAWT). Many claim that VAWTs offer numerous benefits over their HAWT counterparts, leaving many potential buyers and renewable energy enthusiasts in a state of uncertainty about which turbine is truly the best choice for their needs. This video delves deeper into independent tests to provide a clear, factual comparison between VAWTs and HAWTs, shedding light on the rated power, yearly electricity production and sound level. Both wind turbines have been extensively tested in the USA under the same test conditions by independent bodies.
