Enter the total power generated by the wind turbine per day (kWh), the price of electricity (\$/kWh), and the daily cost of the wind turbine (\$) into the calculator to determine the Wind Turbine Profit.

## Wind Turbine Profit Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Wind Turbine Profit.

WTP = (P*EP) – DC

• Where WTP is the Wind Turbine Profit (\$/day)
• P is the total power generated by the wind turbine per day (kWh)
• EP is the price of electricity (\$/kWh)
• DC is the daily cost of the wind turbine (\$)

## How to Calculate Wind Turbine Profit?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Wind Turbine Profit.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the total power generated by the wind turbine per day (kWh). In this example, the total power generated by the wind turbine per day (kWh) is given as 1500 .
2. Next, determine the price of electricity (\$/kWh). For this problem, the price of electricity (\$/kWh) is given as  1.25 .
3. Next, determine the daily cost of the wind turbine (\$). In this case, the daily cost of the wind turbine (\$) is found to be 300.
4. Finally, calculate the Wind Turbine Profit using the formula above:

WTP = (P*EP) – DC

Inserting the values from above yields:

WTP = (1500*1.25) – 300 = 1575 (\$/day)

Example Problem #2

The variables needed for this problem are provided below:

total power generated by the wind turbine per day (kWh) = 1600

price of electricity (\$/kWh) = .86

daily cost of the wind turbine (\$) = 400

Entering these values and solving gives:

WTP = (1600*.86) – 400 = 976 (\$/day)
