It seems like a long time since we’ve been truly independent. While we all enjoy our modern conveniences they have come at a price. For one thing we are now tied to the gluttony of our energy companies.
Wind turbines, which is the way the energy of wind is converted into electricity and stored, have come a long way in designs and size.
Todays turbines are more efficient and this is the reason that they now make sense for the average homeowner.
Here is some information on wind turbines that will help you decide if this energy source is right for you:
2. Due to it’s abundance and the fact that it is available at night, wind energy makes sense for the broadest range of people and locations.
3. You most likely won’t be able to buy a turbine, they can cost thousands, but most any one can build their own for just around $200.
4. Building your own turbine is quite easy. You don’t need special knowledge and any supplies you will need can be purchased at any hardware retailer.

The best thing that you can take away from this is that you do have options in the way you get your energy and you don’t have to just rely on your utility company.
