A 10-kilowatt wind turbine costs between $50,000 to $80,000 to install, as of 2015. Generally, the installation cost of wind turbines under 100 kilowatts range between $3,000 and $8,000 per kilowatt.
Small-scale residential and farm wind turbines typically cost less than large-scale turbines. Commercial wind turbines cost between $1.3 million and $2.2 million for every megawatt of capacity. External factors such as tax incentives can reduce the cost of installing small and large-scale wind turbines. The cost of installing commercial wind turbines also depends on the location of the project, site analysis expenses, construction contracts, legal and consultation fees, and utility system upgrades.
