Small-turbine installers face lower barriers as the logistics are removed from the installation process. Small turbines typically have rotor diameters of 20 feet versus large turbines that are generally more than 200 feet in diameter.

Certification and licensing requirements vary by state and there is currently no federal standard. Large turbine installers usually have a background of other forms of electrical installation and transmission construction, but require no official certification... purchase to read more
