Wind Turbine Energy Systems for Homes

A home wind system uses the available wind and breezes around a residence to rotate a small turbine that converts wind into electricity. These systems are becoming more popular in areas of the US where the wind and breezes are generally constant, and the wind speed (velocity) is typically between 8-35 miles per hour. Most small turbines have the capacity to turn into the direction of the wind to maximize the amount of electricity generated.
