Thinking about building your own wind turbine is a great idea now as it is a good time to so since you could be eligible for a tax credit from your favorite Uncle.
The government is encouraging energy savings in many ways by offering tax credits. Homeowners can receive credits for: adding energy efficient windows and doors, buying energy efficient appliances, and installing wind turbines.If you do not want to make your own wind turbine you can, of course, buy one such as the Sunforce 44447 900W Whisper Wind Turbine
The amount of the tax credit varies but for a turbine it is 30% of the total cost of your turbine. If you buy one and hire someone to install it that can cost you anywhere from $600-$12,000 depending on the size of the turbine.
A 30% tax credit is nothing to sneeze at with that type of expenditure and it can go a long way to help you recoup some of that initial investment. That doesn't even take into consideration the money you'll save on your utility bills.
Of course, as with anything, there are those that say you are wasting your money installing a turbine. They consider it a vanity project.
