Many people are becoming aware that they can use a Home Rooftop Wind Turbine to capture the energy of the wind and convert it into electricity. More and more of these turbines are popping up in backyards all over the country.
Unless you have very deep pockets, and/or plan on staying in your house for 10 or more years, buying a home rooftop wind turbine most likely wouldn't be the best way for you to go. They are expensive and it will take you a long time to recoup that investment.
It is a good idea, however, to build your own home rooftop wind turbine. The technology has advanced to the point where turbines can be small enough to fit on your roof or even in your backyard yet still be able to generate enough electricity to cover around 60% of your household needs.
By building your own you get the best of both worlds: low initial cost (you therefore can recoup your money much more quickly, usually in a matter of months), and the ability to save upwards of 80% on your utility bills.
If you decide to build your own turbine there are three basic steps you need to take:
1. Buy a manual that will show you how to build it in easy step by step directions.
2. Purchase the parts you will need to assemble your home rooftop wind turbine. These parts can be bought at your hardware store for around $200.
3. Set aside a day or two to assemble your home rooftop wind turbine.
That's it. You're done. You now have a way to get electricity from wind and save a lot of money on your utility bills for years to come.
