In 2010 five TWF5 wind turbines have been installed in Portugal by The Wind Factory. The small grid connected wind turbines with a rotor of 5 m have a maximum output of 3,6 kW.
Besides reducing own energy consumption of the different users, the excess of power is exported to the grid. The micro energy generation program in Portugal allowed wind installations below 3,68 kW for preferential feed-in tariffs. This scheme is about to be changed in 2012, where wind energy systems until 250 kW will be in the mini generation category.
