The purpose of this study is to evaluate the benefits of using renewable energy in tandem with conventional sources in order to improve energy efficiency. We did our research by modelling the performance of a small-scale wind turbine and computed the performance for a specific household. The residential house in the case study had its energy consumption measured for a six-year period and was averaged. The estimated power generated by the wind turbine in the local conditions was computed and the energy reduction was obtained. Our data implies that a wind turbine integration is advisable in a windy area.
Keywords: small-scale wind energy production, residential energy efficiency, small-scale renewables.
