"The total cost of 1-kilowatt wind turbine is around $9,000, excluding batteries. With an average wind speed of 9 mph, the estimated annual output is about 1,800 kwh. For a system large enough to provide all of your own energy, say close to 960 kwh per month for the average U.S. home, the costs can be significantly higher."…Continue

I find this strange, that if wind is so green, that Hawaii emits 1.9lb of CO² per kWh delivered to their customers, with Texas at 1.8lb. The two highest wind producers/users yet they burn a lower percentage of fossil fuels. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Yz2BdmzJgFRGsZmPngbMMn6Z-u10B28D3MgjlXL3nE0/pubhtml

.....Wind turbines are put up solely for the Production Tax Credit given to the multinational organizations who end up owning them. Those who make a minuscule percentage of the profit are the few farmers who have the wind towers on their land, the real profits go to those corporations. Wind turbines have nothing to do with wind, green energy or more cost efficient electricity. It is big government…Continue
