You will need an electrician to make the connection between the electrical wires coming out of the microgeneration turbine and the components that will be supplied with up to 48 volts DC.
Please provide your email address and your dwelling’s physical address (or nearest city), and we will be able to send you your wind profile estimate.
The microgeneration wind turbine is designed and engineered for colder North Americans climates. Critical components are manufactured in-house and tested and assembled in Ontario, Canada. All other off-the-shelf components are purchased according to Borrum's high-quality standards. 85% of the components are manufactured in North America.
The two main sources of noise from the turbine are the drivetrain and the blades. We have designed The Anorra to minimize the noise level produced by these sources. For more details, and noise levels at various distances and windspeeds please visit this infographic.
As of recently, it is common to use both terms interchangeably. Both wind power and wind energy describe a process where the wind is harvested to create electricity.
There are multiple environmental benefits of wind energy. We have created an Infographic that describes these benefits.
Please contact us at email@example.com, and we will be able to estimate a payback based on the wind profile at your location.
The microgeneration turbines have a standard warranty of ten years. Additional 10-year and 20-year extended warranty options can also be purchased.

Yes, the next microgeneration turbine, under the code name “Anorra Plus” is expected to deliver about twice as much electricity as the Anorra. The pre-release for partners is by the end of 2020.
There is in fact a difference between “clean” and “renewable” energy. Clean energy encompasses any source that does not produce air pollutants. Renewable energy refers to power generated by resources or processes that are replenished at a rate equal to or faster than the rate at which they are consumed. Wind energy is both clean and renewable. To learn more, visit our blog post.
Wind Technology is quite fascinating, it can also be complicated. Borrum wants to make wind technology as simple and accessible to all homeowners. Check out our infographic on how wind energy is produced to get a rundown on wind technology!
