wind turbines: Affordable Wind Turbines
If you thought that affordable wind turbines were too noisy, bulky, expensive, or unreliable in low winds,or high winds, we want to tell you about a our new product that can dispel those worries. At this year's convention , we spotted a truly remarkable alternative energy product developed by the Texas-based company affordable wind turbines for affordable wind. The AWT affordable Wind Turbine is one of the best examples of affordable wind power generators for residential, small business, and commercial applications. Just like many of us, I have my reservations about whether owning an AWT affordable wind turbine is practical for city life, so I caught the ear of John from affordable wind turbines to for more details.

Instead of spinning gears, the affordable wind Turbine uses a patent pending magnetic technology to generate energy. Each blade is high strength steel reinforced firber-glass that is very strong and can handle very high winds and not need to brake so as they spin faster in high winds the turbine does not need to shut down like conventional wind turbines and you get more power annually out of the affordable wind turbines design so it pays for itself in less than 2 years ! . Essentially, the entire affordable wind turbines - turbine is bullet proof, and it only needs winds of 3 mph to get it spinning and the affordable wind turbine can continue to function in winds over 80 mph and generate usable energy.
John even had it running with just the air blown from a tiny desktop fan. Because it's a vertical axis wind turbine it will always be in the direction of the wind path. This video gives a quick look at how it works.
It is also worth mentioning that the affordable wind turbine is quiet — it only emits 15db, which is about the same level of ambient noise found in a library. When I was standing next to it talking to John, you could not hear it at all among the noise of the trade show goers.
For many, home energy costs recently have increased by over 50 percent (or more), motivating a growing number of people to look for affordable wind turbine alternatives. The proliferation of net metering laws, in about 40 states, as well as a growing number of state residential affordable wind turbines incentive programs, has given a strong boost to the small-scale affordable wind turbines industry.
What’s more, recent technical developments have reduced blade noise and improved both turbine efficiency and longevity. There now are a number of new home-scale affordable wind turbines with advanced technology, and there’s the promise of more to come in the near future.
For many years, residential affordable wind turbines have been most popular in rural locations where zoning laws tend to be less restrictive and neighbors less likely to object to them (mainly on aesthetic grounds). That may be about to change. Many in the small-scale affordable wind turbines industry think affordable residential wind power is about to enter suburbia with simpler, less expensive systems that perform more like household appliances, that simply plug into a wall outlet , instead of other exspensive complicated renewable energy systems.
And the potential is enormous; it’s estimated there are at least 15 million homes with the resources necessary to make a affordable wind turbines installation cost effective.
But does it really make sense to install a wind turbine in your back yard? Maybe, maybe not. A wind power system that works well in one location may not work in another. There are many variables to consider: the size of your lot, zoning restrictions, wind speeds in your area, the cost and amount of electricity you use, whether your utility offers net metering, and the availability of state rebates and incentives.
Affordable wind turbines also produces a wind and solar unit that is grid tied by plugging into a standard wall outlet it's base is filled with water and does not require an electrician and or special permits , as it is considered an appliance , so no net metering is required !
affordable Wind turbines Power Picks Up Speed
Harvesting the wind to generate electricity is not a new idea. In 1888, Charles F. Brush of Cleveland created a wind turbine for this purpose. Early turbines could supply enough energy for a house or two. Today, affordable wind turbines large commercial-scale affordable wind turbines can produce about 3 megawatts or more, enough to power about 750 U.S. homes. The recent growth of this industry in the United States has been dramatic. affordable wind power capacity increased by 27 percent in 2006 and is expected to increase an additional 26 percent this year, according to the American affordable wind energy association. Enthusiasm for small-scale affordable wind turbines also is on the rise, with sales for residential systems at $17 million in 2005, up 62 percent from 2004, according to the association.
Older design residential wind turbines were first commercialized in the United States in the 1920s and were fairly popular until the Rural Electrification Administration extended wind turbine electric lines to many remote areas in the 1930s and ’40s. The oil crises of the 1970s spurred a flurry of renewed interest in affordable residential wind power until the tax credits and other government incentives that supported the industry ended in the 1980s , have now been reinstated.
Affordable wind turbines Has seen market changes and power company net metering and smart meter conversions that have led to the end user of wind or solar not allowed to receive full benefit of its residential products and a fast pay off due to the smart meters not moving backwards and or net metering solutions offered by power companies not giving the end user a ( full going rate for electricity) , this leads to still having to pay an electric bill and power companies reap the profits . Until now the AWT affordable wind turbines wind and solar appliance just plugs into a wall outlet , thus negating regulations set by power companies and city permitting is not required as it does not require a concrete foundation and the design catches wind and sun from 360 degrees and is about the size of you refrigerator.
