Plans

  • AE Wind Turbine Plans - PESWiki comment page to accompany site that sells plans for $30.00.
  • All-Wooden Wind Generator - Full set of plans to build a functional device, as published in Home Power magazine. (Forcefield)

Illustration

  • Video >
    GE Wind Turbine Installation (600 kb download) - quicktime time-lapse presentation of assembly of one of 108 turbines recently installed in Colorado; which combined are capable of generating 160 MW on a windy day. (submitted by engineer who worked on project.)


    ~Jan. 2004

Companies

  • Bergey Windpower Co. - "the world's leading supplier of small wind turbines for homes, businesses, and off-grid."
  • American Wind Energy Association
  • Pristine-Power - Providing wind power solutions for homes and businesses; includes referral incentives.
  • REPower: World's Largest Wind Turbine - 5 Megawatt output comes from three 18-ton blades. (SlashDot; Oct. 2, 2004)
  • TechLine Power - U.S. company focuses on the design, development, and management of small and large-scale wind and photovoltaic renewable energy systems.  Able to monitor systems remotely.  Train operational staff.  Founded 1975.
  • Wyndpower Group - is developing a wind turbine system that can be mounted on a rooftop and that will respond to winds as low as 3.8 mph. Presently still in R&D. (PESWiki)

  • Wind Power--An Illustrated History of its Development

Counter Arguments

  • Lightning at wind farms 'could start fires' - Direct lightning strikes on wind farms could create power surges that damage the electricity network and start forest fires, according to campaigners against the proliferation of turbines in Scotland. (Scotsman; Aug. 20, 2004)
    • Reply: "Think of how many hits the electric grid take each year. There are miles upon miles of electric wires strung around that lightning can hit - and has." -- Sheldon
  • Wind companies sued over bird deaths - California environmental group seeks to force the operators of one of North America's largest windmill farms to take steps to reduce the number of birds killed in the turbines' propellers. (Reuters; Nov. 4, 2004)
    • Birds Not Being Killed by Wind Farms -Ecologist - Installations are actually benefiting their local ecology in Denmark. (Yahoo News; Nov. 25, 2004)
  • Will Wind Power Change Earth's Climate? - Recent wind power study models the effects of introducing massive amounts of wind farms into North America. According to their results, while still having only 1/5th the impact of fossil fuels, wind power will still adjust the earth's climate with the equatorial regions warmed while the arctic grows colder. (Slashdot; Nov. 10, 2004)

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
Schopenhauer
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)
