Wind Turbine

How long does it take a wind turbine to pay for itself?

Just an average size wind turbine in a wind farm.
Managed to find the answer myself, The average wind farm in the UK will pay back the energy used in its manufacture within six to eight months, this compares favourably with coal or nuclear power stations, which take about six months.

hi

The payback period depends on so many things i.e. cost of windmill, realisation per unit sale of electricity, mode of financing, location etc.

So people have different views. Variation is too large 3 to 8 years.

Good luck.
