Advantage of Vertical Wind Turbine

The advantage of VAWT is that it doesn’t need to always be faced against the wind’s direction like the HAWT. The blades of the vertical axis wind turbine can intercept the wind from any directions because of the blade design. The VAWT are usually of smaller scale turbine than most HAWT and therefore it is easier to be transported and installed. The VAWT can also be use in residential area on roofs because of its smaller size. It is also easier to repair VAWT because the gearbox and generator are placed at the bottom of the turbine.
