Power of Wind: How to Finance Wind Energy for Your Home

Q. “When is Earth Month?”

A. “EVERY month — or else it’s all over.”

Going Green?

Maybe turning your property into a traditional farm isn’t workable — although growing a few veggies is certainly a good step.

But the most effective strategy is to produce your own energy: wind, solar or water powered generation.  It’s a truly Green solution, while saving a lot of money and making you independant of the Grid.

“Wind power is developing rapidly at both the European and global level. Between 1992 and 2008, the global installed capacity of wind power increased from 2.5 GW to more than 120 GW, an average annual growth rate of more than 25%. Due to ongoing improvements in turbine efficiency, wind power is increasing in economic competitiveness against conventional power production.”   Source: The European Wind Energy Association.

A very substantial share of the heat and electricity produced all around the world is generated by a coal, gas or nuclear powered plants.

By using Wind Energy Systems the following will be avoided, comparing to more conventional methods:

1. The emissions that in turn contribute to poor air quality and global warming
2. The Depletion of fossil fuel reserves
3. Price volatility created by global energy commodity market fluctuations
4. The health and safety issues related to mining, processing, consumption and disposal of fuels and wastes

Wind Electric Power offers attractive alternatives to conventional electricity generation. Among today’s renewable energy choices, Wind Electric Power is one of the market’s most attractive options.

Wind Electric Power Solar is:
1. Clean – No carbon footprint or harmful emissions.
2. Cost Effective – Current tax incentives make wind electricity cost-competitive with conventional electricity.
3. Dependable – wind turbines may last 20 to 30 years, or longer

Uneven heating of the atmosphere is the main cause of wind, also the spin of the earth and irregularities of the earth’s surface, add a small amount of winds. Humans have many uses for a wind flow, such as: pumping water, sailing boats, but also generating electricity.

Generating electricity from the wind energy (or wind power) refers to the process by which wind turbines convert the movement or kinetic energy of the wind into electricity.

Wind energy has really become integrated into our culture, worldwide in fact, over the last couple of decades. We developed wind mills that harnessed energy, started popping them up a little bit everywhere, then the technology developed even more, methods of storing energy, and then there are offshore wind farms that developed, and today you can buy your own wind mill and power your house yourself!

Wind energy today is the part of the social consciousness and our culture’s growing green energy trend, so the demand for a renewable energy financing has been increasing dramatically.

The first and the most important thing for any Wind Energy Project is the wind survey done by a reputable third party firm that would provide a proof of constant and high amounts of wind for the future project.

Although the wind’s energy is free, special equipment is needed to convert it to electricity. The up-front costs of this equipment can be a daunting barrier to any startup or even income producing Wind Project. That is why the majority of the Wind Projects look for financing.

For small home-based wind projects the financing is most readily provided by adapting your own Green Strategy: as with any other lifestyle change, you must reevaluate your priorities.

What is most important to you and your family?  Worth spending money on?

What is no longer needed in your lives?  Is it time to STOP letting them call you a “consumer” — but become a full living human being again?  A loving, spiritual, creative, dreaming, independent Human.  Time to cut up credit cards and stop building up debt just to buy consumer Stuff that will be garbage in two years.  The money is there — and the savings will more than pay it back.
