What kind of wind turbines are good?
The exotic “egg beaters” and strange designs of 3 to 9 turbines on a tall rod, look interesting, but aren’t very efficient. They are hard to assemble, and often create noise and vibration. The barrel designs are low and heavy, and require high wind speeds for good production. But nothing matches the efficiency of a “2 or 3 blade propeller”design, for cost, effective production, and quiet operation. At www.wind-inc.comwe believe the technology from Holland is excellent because that nation has been doing windmills and turbines longer than most. We saw a windmill there that was built in 1740, used to pump the ocean water out, so they could convert the ocean floor to farmlands. We think good traditional designs are of the best value for your investment, and of top electric production. 26. Will electric companies pay me for my power? By law, 46 states in the USA require utilities to pay you for excess production. This is also the rule in Europe .But, if you are in a state like Texas, many f
