What happens when the wind doesn’t blow?

By its very nature, wind varies and does not blow consistently all the time. This is why, where the wind turbines are sited is so important; erecting them in an area with prevailing winds ensures that the turbines can generate energy and provide energy to the grid about 90% of the time.

The wind turbine only cuts in (starts operating) when wind speed reaches approximately 13km/h.
