Think you have to spend a bunch of money to buy contraption to be a member of the wind turbine club? Think again. Rooftop wind turbines are becoming more and more popular. Rooftop turbines send the electricity they generate straight on to the homeowner’s circuit box, thus reducing their utility bills while using a renewable resource.
For example, the Swift Wind Turbine is both compact and quiet. By installing a wind turbine, users can reduce their carbon emissions as well as lower their electricity bills. When the wind is blows at 30 miles an hour or more, it will generate 1.5 kilowatts of electrical power However, these turbines can still run between $10 – $12,000 but state and federal incentives will help buyers supplement the cost.
