Small Wind Turbines are electric generators that use the energy of the
wind to produce clean, emissions-free power for individual homes, farms, and small businesses. With this simple and increasingly popular
technology, individuals can generate their own power and cut their energy bills while helping to protect the environment. Unlike utility-scale
turbines, small turbines can be suitable for use on properties as small as one acre of land in most areas of the country.
