Residential wind turbines
Im starting to do a bit of research into possible adding one or two of these to my home to help off set some utilities. Just wondering if anyone here has done this and their experience. Pros/cons, maintence costs, etc.Liqidvenom-"i notice there is a point where i can drink and have super hero cock.... and one shot more then its all wind sock from there"

I have looked into it, but the space requirements based on height make it hard to do at my house.

I've heard of health concerns but maybe you're not talking that big. And I don't know how legitimate those concerns are. Just a heads up."Whatever you're thinking, think bigger." - Tony Hsieh

There are also noise concerns, environmental concerns... I am thinking of trying out a small generator a few feet off my roof, a small one that you would use on a caravan or cabin. Small investment that would give me an idea if it is worth while.

you will need to look at wind patterns in your area for the year, then factor in how much energy they will produce vs the cost of the turbines. In past research, not worth it

Before any real company will install wind turbines they would come out and wind map your plot of land. I think it is a couple bucks and they can tell you if your land is suitable and the best way to make sure of available energy. Solar + Wind compliment each other, for wind when there is no wind there is no power with solar you aren't making power at night.East bound and down, loaded up and truckin',
we're gonna do what they say can't be done.
