Ian Buckle and Wind Turbine

Wind Turbines generate electricity and are suitable for an exposed, windy site positioned away from any obstruction. Output is related to the square of rotor diameter so a small increase in size gives a bigger increase in electricity.

Initial reports suggest that the DIY £1500 units will not make much impact on the electric usage, therefore aim for something bigger.
