Many people think that they can’t use wind power for their home because they don’t live on a farm or have a lot of land. The good news is that is not true. Wind turbines come in different shapes and sizes. You can even put them on your roof.
So now that you know you don’t have to miss out on a chance to save money on your electric bill by building your own wind turbine, now what,
Now it’s important that you know a little about wind turbines and what you can expect and what you can’t expect.
A simplified explanation of how a turbine works is that it takes the energy of the wind, converts it to electricity, and stores the electricity for later use.
A small turbine will obviously make less electricity than a large one. In order to generate enough electricity for an average home using a small yard sized, or roof sized, turbine you would need more than one. You would probably need three or four.
Many people wouldn’t want that many turbines on their roof or in their yard, your neighbors probably wouldn’t love the idea either! But the good news is that while one small turbine won’t generate all the electricity you need it will generate enough to save you a considerable amount of money on your energy bill.
Some people save upwards of 80%. Since the turbine is inexpensive to build and with the savings you’ll get it is still worth your while to build your own turbine even if it won’t generate enough electricity to completely free you from your utility company.
Save money and save the planet all by using wind power. It’s not hard to do and it can give you a real sense of satisfaction, not to mention a bigger wallet!
