Introduction to buying a wind turbine

What wind turbine should I purchase?

Determine how much electricity you consume per average month or annually.   You can get this information off your utility bills, or from your utility company.

Select a turbine that has a yearly production that is close to or slightly more than the amount of electricity you consume annualy

Consider that a heavier turbine is likely to have fewer repairs and will last longer than a lighter turbine

Select a turbine manufacturer that has a long track record, i.e., that is listed in the June/July 2009 (#131) issue of Home Power Magazine article How to Buy a Wind Generator

Or, you may simply select from the list below of wind turbines recommended by RMS&WI then contact us to get current pricing
