Choosing the best residential wind turbine…here’s what you need to know.
One person’s perfect residential wind turbine is another person’s worthless pile of scrap metal. In other words, when it comes to the wind power, there’s a heck of a lot involved!
But, if you’re curious about whether or not residential wind power can cut your electricity bill in half (or more), and if you’re interested in green electricity and whether or not it’s a good way for you to help protect the planet, spend some time here on this site.
First, get the best alternative energy information
When you’re first dipping your toe into the world of residential wind power, it’s important that you get good information. By spending time here on this site, you’ll find the best my research has uncovered and you’ll be able to save yourself a considerable amount of time.
However, when you visit other sites on green energy, remember that you’re looking for stories of people who have actually made it work–not of people who think wind power is cool. I have a background in engineering, so when I built my first wind power kit, it was a little easier for me than your first time might be. That’s why I take the time to explain precisely how I do what I do so that you can follow along easily and I think that’s an important thing to get from a site like this on residential uses of wind power.
What’s wrong with other sources of energy?
You already know that non-renewable energy isn’t good for the planet. Nuclear power plants generate radioactive waste that we’re not entirely sure what to do with. Coal plants generate pollution. They’re dangerous and costly and as our power needs increase, the drawbacks increase.
Renewable energy, on the other hand, and green power, these are sustainable over the long term. They can help with the U.S. energy crisis and they can help make you more self-sufficient when you use them in your home. Typical green power sources include water, solar, and wind. Water isn’t something you can likely harness on your own, but you can harness the sun and the wind in your own backyard.
That’s what makes them both perfect for residential electricity.
Wind Power Home Guide Tip: You know those old-time residential wind turbines that were noisy, enormous, and eyesores in the countryside? Well, today’s wind turbines are completely different! Growing consumer demand has forced companies to create much more attractive, quieter wind turbines for backyard installations.
Do you like the idea of doing your part to protect the planet and reduce reliance on fossil fuels?
Whether you believe that we’re near the end of the planet’s oil and coal reserves or not doesn’t matter–the fact is once we run out of oil and coal, that’s it. There’s no more. And yes, scientists are likely to invent a new source of electricity. But why wait when there *is* a new source available to us. Especially when we can capture it so inexpensively.
The wind and sun are all around us, and by not just ignoring them as a source of electricity, we can begin to power our homes with renewable energy instead of relying on depleting, polluting sources.
Preparing your home for renewable wind power is a journey. And it’s one I think you’ll enjoy! I’m happy to be your guide.
Are you ready to begin your wind power home?
Not yet! I suggest you start with the section on what’s wrong with wind kits. Using the wrong wind kit can be a huge hindrance when you’re first getting started with wind power and you’ll find yourself frustrated and out a lot of money if you begin before you read this article.
