You saw those huge wind turbines. They use the wind to produce energy. As you can imagine, they are useful. A good thing is that you can use wind turbines to produce electricity for your home. Of course, they are much smaller and they produce less electricity, but they are the best option for a green shack. Sadly, wind turbines aren’t cheap, but because a green shack doesn’t have electrical installation, beside solar panels, this is your only option. A good side is that there are many different models, so you can find a one you like. Some of recommended wind turbines are:
• The Sunforce 400-Watt 12-Volt Wind Turbine is portable, lightweight wind generator. You can use it to charge your 12 Volt batteries. It can be used for marine and land applications. Dimensions are: D (44 in), H (44 in), W (27 in) and H (product height is 27 inches). Rotor diameter is 3.67 ft. The price is $499.99.
• The Nature Power 400-Watt Wind Turbine Power Generator can produce up to 400 watts of electricity. For this amount of electricity, the speed of the wind must be 28 mph. But it can continue producing electricity even when the speed of the wind is 5.6 mph. It has been designed for charging 12 Volts systems. The body can function perfectly even if the speed of the wind is 10 mph. The price is $499.99.
• Nature Power 2000-Watt Wind Turbine Power Generator has an MPPT Controller. It can produce up to 2000 watts of electricity, when the wind speed is 28 mph. The price is $2.500.
