Home Wind

In the wake of a downturned economy and an age of environmental responsibility, many people are seeking less expensive and less toxic alternatives for energy and are installing wind turbines to provide electricity for their homes. Windmills have been used for thousands of years to pump water and grind and are still used for those purposes throughout the world today. Their use to produce electricity began in the late 1800s in the United States and the technology has continually improved since then.

There are many things to take into account before choosing to use a wind turbine for your home, such as wind speeds, the windmill's size and the type of land you have. This website focuses on residential wind power and provides information on the pros and cons of this still controversial form of energy. It also provides you with some resources on building your own turbine, links to manufacturers of wind energy equipment and other helpful sites. Since there is so much to consider with wind energy, I urge you to take the time to research further before making a decision.
