'personal' wind mills

16 years ago

hi all, new to this section of the forums...

my father in law is currently in the process of having commercial wind mills put on his property by horizon. horizon was pretty quick to decide to put them there because of the "wind tunnel". that got me and my wife thinking about when we build our house about a 1/2 mile from there. is there such a thing as a "personal" wind mill that would generate enough to power our entire house? what would the cost of someting like that be? 10-15k? i think that price would be worth not having an electric bill. what else would be involved with something like this in terms of maintainence? what if the wind doesnt blow? is it even worth our time to look into it?
