Between the ‘green movement’ and the recession people are very interested in finding new ways to save the planet and a little of their hard earned money. Building wind turbines for your home can be one way to accomplish both goals.
It’s actually a little astonishing that more people aren’t using turbines to generate electricity for their homes. It’s free, it’s easy, it’s effective and it’s completely green. Wind is the ultimate renewable resource.
These turbines don’t have to be the huge monstrosities you see in the field. Even a small turbine can help you save on your energy bill, though it won’t be enough to provide enough electricity for your whole house.
If you have several turbines set up and you generate more electricity than you need it can be stored in inexpensive batteries to be used later, so on days when it’s not windy you can use your ‘saved up’ electricity.
Any excess electricity can also be sold back to electric companies: wouldn’t that be nice for a change, your utility company paying you instead of the other way around!
Building your own turbine is not only easy, it’s inexpensive. There are many places where you can go to get easy do-it-yourself manuals that will walk through the whole process from start to finish. You can easily recoup the small investment in just a few months.
Another advantage is that you don’t have to worry about someone hitting a utility pole three blocks away and knocking out your electricity. You have much more control over your own power.
If you want to go green while you save some green consider building wind turbines for your home. You can save yourself a ton and gain huge in the bragging rights department!
