The Vestas V29 is a slightly larger bladed 225kW medium sized wind turbine, suitable for sites with lower wind speeds.
The energy capture of the Vestas V29 turbine is exceptionally good across a wide range of wind speeds, and comes installed on a 31 metre free-standing tower for maximum energy capture.
The Vestas V29 turbine is intended for a range of harsh conditions, especially exposed locations.The remaining design life of these machines is in excess of 20 years.

At a particular location, the wind speed will vary about an annual mean value.
Note: The annual electricity consumption of a medium size home is in the region of 4- 6MWh or 11-16 kWh per day. At 6 m/s wind speed the Vestas V29 can provide the annual energy needs for 100 homes.
