With more and more people becoming increasingly concerned about the environment, homeowners are turning to alternative sources of energy. While solar energy has received much attention in recent decades, a power generating windmill deserves serious consideration as well. Requiring as little as 12 miles per hour of wind, these structures are proving to be quite reliable at generating the amount of electricity that the average homeowner requires today.
With a power generating windmill, most homeowners will begin to see their investment paid back in as little as six years. This is thanks, of course, to the reduction in utility bills. Many governmental jurisdictions also offer tax credits and rebates to offset the cost, which is currently in the $30,000 range including installation. Homeowners will need a good area of land to allow for a radius of at least 18 feet for the windmill to operate.
If you are looking for a way to power your home, protect the environment, and save money on your utilities in the long run, then a power generating windmill might just be the solution for your home.
