Depending on where you live, you might find it highly preferable to install electric wind generators at home. However, this largely depends on where you live when it comes to how much power you will be able to produce.
Technology is continuing to advance in the areas of domestic renewable energy sources. Some of the best home wind generators are now built on a vertical axis and do not even require particularly high wind speeds and neither do they need to be built on towers.
These latest products are starting to appear in the market today. In fact, some companies are even producing products by basically combining wind turbines with solar cells so you truly can get the best of both worlds.
However, the biggest worry with regards to home wind generators is whether or not they will produce enough power to be worth even considering in the first place. These mostly depend on where you live and in general you do need a wind speed of approximately nine miles per hour average throughout the year.
If these requirements cannot be met then it might not be worth installing the wind generator at all or otherwise looking into different options such as the newer vertical axis turbines. It is also important to remember exactly what domestic wind generators are supposed to do and what you should expect of them.
While you generally can’t expect to draw all your power from a domestic wind generator, you can expect for a considerable amount, enough that it makes a very welcome impact on your electricity bills. Provided the requirements of installation are met such as with regards to wind speed etc., It should supply more than enough power to do basic electrical tasks on a regular basis and will knock a decent amount off your bills.
