This, of course, not only supports a healthy environment, but can also reduce monthly utility bills – or even eliminate them. But wind power is not a perfect answer for everyone. Here are some facts about wind turbines you need to evaluate if you’re thinking about using wind to power your home. Facts About Wind Turbines You have to know if there’s enough wind in your location to make a wind powered home work. This means doing some homework about how often – and how strongly – the wind blows in your geographical area. You also have to consider wind speed and strength at the height of your wind turbine. Keep in mind that wind speeds on the ground are not the same as they might be at the height of your turbine tower. Often, there are obstructions at ground level like trees, buildings and other homes. You’ll have to do some research get this right. You also have to consider what type of device you want to use to capture the wind. There are various types of windmills, and one may be better suited to your situation than another.

    For a person who spends all his time in New York City, what makes you an authority on the subject? To start with, as said, they are wind generators. Not Wind Mills. Kinda shoots your credibility in the foot to start. There's lots of variables in wind generators. You didn't talk about them.

    Wasn't there a law passed that HOA's could not dictate type, height or placement of any Green Energy device… IE… Solar Panels, Wind Turbine.  I'm pretty sure I heard there was a law passed a year or two ago, but it may be only in Indiana.  However, I will find out and advocate our representatives to pull this type of bill into the hands of the representatives to decide, not some HOE, which is probably ran by people outside the neighborhood.
