This standard was created by the small wind turbine industry, scientists, state officials, and consumers to provide consumers with realistic and comparable performance ratings and an assurance the small wind turbine products certified to this standard have been engineered and tested to meet carefully considered standards for safety and operation. The goal of the standard is to provide consumers with a measure of confidence in the quality of small wind turbine products and an improved basis for comparing the performance and characteristics of competing products. Compliance with this standard for the purposes of advertising or program qualification, or any other purpose, is the responsibility of the manufacturer.
