Here we go again. Many people were fearful of making their utility bills last winter, and this season doesn’t look any better. While prices have gone down somewhat so has the income of many people. If you want to take steps today to lower your utility costs this winter using wind as a cheap energy source is a great place to start.
There are many things you can do to cut your energy bills: add insulations, get a programmable thermostat, replace or repair leaky windows and doors, etc., while these things are helpful none of them will make a huge impact on your bills.
Using wind, by way of a wind turbine, to produce your own electricity will give you a bigger bang for your buck.
Many people are finding that they can actually build their own wind turbines, it’s easy and inexpensive yet it can produce up to 60% of the energy your home needs daily.
To build a small home wind turbine you will need some supplies, which will cost around $200, and a few days time. It’s very easy and will pay off big.
There are negative people who will say that it’s a waste of time and you won’t be able to generate enough electricity with your own turbine to make a difference. I guess that’s true, to a point.
If your goal is to generate all the electricity your home needs with just one small turbine than you will be disappointed. If, on the other hand, you only hope to generate enough electricity to make a fairly big dent in your utility bill than one turbine can do it.
The important thing to remember is that whatever savings you get from your turbine isn’t just good for one season or one year, it will add up for years to come and that is significant.
So use a wind turbine to take advantage of a cheap energy source and save the environment as well as save yourself some of your hard earned money.
