A Simple Wind Generator for Your Home.
The idea of having a solar panel situated on your property that will provide your domestic energy supply has become common coin for most householders. However, growing numbers are also looking at small wind energy projects that will compliment this system by adapteding to different weather conditions required for the functionality of solar. This system however, is restricted to holding a minimum of one acre of land. If you have one acre then you are then able to install a five kilowatt small wind energy generator that will stand around double the height of a telegraph pole for around $ 25,000. Quite expensive as some time will pass before you get a ROI. Check first and see if you can obtain a tax credit or other type of rebate to help with the expense. The theory being that the extra energy generated is fed back to the grid and obversely the utility company can still provide your needs on calmer days.

If you don’t happen to have an acre then you can still perhaps benefit by forming your own local community project utilizing schools, churches and other organizations that are more likely to have the land requirements. The popularity of this system not only attracts energy savers but people who wish to decentralize and live in a more greener environment. The Small Wind Energy World Summit takes place in Germany next month (March 2010) in Husum. An excellent venue for discovering the virtues of small community-based energy projects on cleaner,less expensive and more favorable supply of green energy.Here’s a review of a small wind energy Community Project that will
Wind Ownership. Can there be such a thing as “wind rights”? explain.
We are now entering a period when wind energy will become less expensive than conventional fossil fuel energy. You may wish to consider then that fossil fuel production amounts to $ 120 billion each year and the environmental damage that this causes, so how will the Oil companies then remain dominant in the energy industry? They will be unable to control market forces and prices by manipulating the supply of the wind resource, but will perhaps be forced to invest in wind energy resources. A study undertaken by Stanford University claimed that wind resource could provide the world’s needs 7 times over.
Communities vs Corporate.
Wind industry experts claim that the wind industry itself grew five-fold during the 2000 and 2007 period alone. Over $ 36 billion has already been invested in wind energy globally. The industry is forecast to quadruple over the next decade. We are then likely to see how large companies will be lobbying to influence government policy to initiate tax incentives and rebates for this type of energy. This makes even more vital that on the domestic scene that communities and individuals take control of their energy source before once again, becoming prey to the monopolistic energy corporations.
Seen as the most popular and favoured green energy providers, small wind energy is the energy of the future. Don’t forget – take a look at this excellent review about a particular small wind energy
