## Wind Turbine Profit Calculator

Enter the values to calculate the profit

Do you know how much profit a wind turbine can generate? Use the Wind Turbine Profit Calculator that will help you to find out. This tool allows you to enter several key values to calculate the potential profit from a wind turbine investment.

### What is Wind Turbine Profit?

Wind turbine money is what's left over after paying for all the costs and sales. It looks at the first cost, fix-it costs, and money from selling the electricity made.

### How to Use the Calculator

To use the Wind Turbine Profit Calculator is simple. Follow below steps:

**Enter the Wind Turbine Cost:**Input the initial investment required to purchase and install the wind turbine. For example, enter`1000000`

USD.**Enter the Annual Maintenance Cost:**Provide the yearly operating and maintenance expenses. For instance, enter`50000`

USD/year.**Enter the Average Wind Speed:**Input the average wind speed at the turbine location. For example, enter`7.5`

m/s.**Enter the Efficiency:**Set the efficiency of the turbine in converting wind energy to electricity. For instance, use the default value of`30%`

.**Enter the Turbine Lifetime:**Specify the expected operational lifespan of the wind turbine. For example, enter`20`

years.**Enter the Electricity Price:**Input the selling price of electricity. For instance, enter`0.1`

USD/kWh.**Enter the Capacity Factor:**Provide the average operating power output as a percentage of the turbine's maximum rated power. Use the default value of`25%`

.**Enter the Rated Power:**Specify the maximum output power of the wind turbine. For example, enter`1500`

kW.

### Example Calculations

#### Example 1

Foe example your input is:

**Wind Turbine Cost:**1,000,000 USD**Annual Maintenance Cost:**50,000 USD/year**Average Wind Speed:**7.5 m/s**Efficiency:**30%**Turbine Lifetime:**20 years**Electricity Price:**0.1 USD/kWh**Capacity Factor:**25%**Rated Power:**1500 kW

**Calculation Steps:**

Annual Energy Output = 1500 kW * 24 hours/day * 365 days/year * 0.25 = 3,285,000 kWh

Annual Revenue = 3,285,000 kWh * 0.1 USD/kWh = 328,500 USD

Annual Profit = 328,500 USD - 50,000 USD = 278,500 USD

Total Profit = (278,500 USD * 20 years) - 1,000,000 USD = 4,570,000 USD

#### Example 2

For example your input is:

**Wind Turbine Cost:**1,200,000 USD**Annual Maintenance Cost:**60,000 USD/year**Average Wind Speed:**8.0 m/s**Efficiency:**35%**Turbine Lifetime:**25 years**Electricity Price:**0.12 USD/kWh**Capacity Factor:**30%**Rated Power:**2000 kW

**Step-by-Step Steps to calculate Calculation:**

Annual Energy Output = 2000 kW * 24 hours/day * 365 days/year * 0.30 = 5,256,000 kWh

Annual Revenue = 5,256,000 kWh * 0.12 USD/kWh = 630,720 USD

Annual Profit = 630,720 USD - 60,000 USD = 570,720 USD

Total Profit = (570,720 USD * 25 years) - 1,200,000 USD = 13,268,000 USD
