Residential Wind Turbine - Can I Have One at My House?

A residential wind turbine is the perfect renewable energy source for many households. Free wind power from home wind turbines allow you to use a cheap source (not the expensive electric company) for your electricity needs.

Many people, when they begin to research wind power, think it is a very complicated and expensive way of having alternative energy. Nothing could be farther from the truth. You can build a wind turbine with very little time, money or knowledge.

I know, I know, that isn't what the big commercial companies tell you. But, it is what thousands of people around the world already know. They have done it. Many have also built solar panels for backup.

A residential wind turbine can easily fit in any home, whether it is a large house or a small apartment. You can place them on your roof, in your yard or even on a balcony or patio. They are truly a great energy solution.

With a wind generator, you can:

  • Have free renewable energy
  • Greatly reduce or eliminate your dependence on the electric company
  • Decrease your monthly expenses
  • You can receive tax credits for alternative energy
  • You can sell excess energy that you create back to the electric company

There are many great manuals on the market today showing homeowners how to accomplish this for themselves. Anyone can do it just by following simple and illustrated instructions.

So, if you are interested in a residential wind turbine, you can have a system with simple parts, less than $200 and easy instructions. You can even find the batteries to store your energy for free.
