Home Wind Turbine
With the technological advancements of today, wind turbine prices are decreasing and becoming much more accessible for residential use.
A wind turbine can be a great benefit to a home, generating electricity and saving energy costs in the long run.
Deciding whether or not to have a wind turbine for your home is not an easy decision. However, when someone does purchase a wind turbine for their home it probably was for one of the following reasons:
1. To reduce or offset all fossil fuel electric consumption in order to reduce the environmental carbon footprint of the household.
2. To have a secure source of backup power during power grid failures, or if a power grid is unavailable or too expensive to access.
3. For financial reasons. To stabilize the price of your household’s electricity at a set level. To receive rebates and tax credits, and to avoid the potential of future driven price increases in fossil fuels.
4. For prestige.
The decision to purchase a residential wind turbine for your home should be taken very seriously. If not carefully planned and constructed in a proper location, a home wind turbine could become a costly mistake.
If you are serious about having a residential wind turbine generate electricity for your home you should do the proper research and get professional advise and consulting before you make any financial commitments.
