New Consumer's Guide on Small Wind Systems... 
Can Wind Energy be Used to Power Your Home? 

Spiraling utility bills in some parts of the nation, the need for uninterrupted service and concerns over environmental impacts are generating increased interest in small wind energy systems. Small wind electric systems can make a significant contribution to our nation's energy needs. Although wind turbines large enough to provide a significant portion of the electricity needed by the average U.S. home generally require one acre of property or more, about 21 million homes are built on one acre or larger sites, and about one-quarter of the U.S. population lives in rural areas.

Small Wind Electric Systems provides basic information you need to answer essential questions and address many factors you need to consider to successfully install a small wind energy system and get maximum production.
