The annual output of its smallest grid-tied model, which is rated at 3.4 kilowatts of capacity, can deliver a wide range of electricity depending on wind speed. The company says it can produce anywhere between 2,900 kilowatt-hours and 11,900 kilowatt-hours per year. The company also sells a line of smaller turbines designed to charge batteries.
