ABSTRACT
The paper illustrates economical assessment of the grid-connected onshore micro wind turbines. The calculation is based on onshore wind speed hourly minimum value of 4 m height in Latvia approximated according to each wind turbine tower height. The result shows that increase in annual expenditure on electricity produced by onshore micro wind turbines is more than 264 %.
