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.
