According to the US Energy Information Administration, wind generated an estimated 691,000 megawatthours per day (MWh/d) of electricity in 2017, which is expected to rise to an average of 705,000 MWh/d in 2018 and 765,000 MWh/d in 2019. If project conditions hold, 2019 will be the first year that wind generation exceeds hydropower generation.
WindShark wind turbines address several markets that have demand for affordable recreational or off-the-grid power supplies, not only in North America but the Asia-Pacific, Europe, South America, and Africa regions:
RESIDENTIAL, INCLUDING CABINS AND COTTAGES
ELECTRICAL VEHICLE CHARGING STATIONS
OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY
