    "Off-grid-on-a-shoestring" transition e-book

    Another
    good one for alternate energy and low cost alternatives to building
    materials etc, is NO CHAINS the "Off-grid-on-a-shoestring" transition
    e-book. It is from the folks at www.wayoffgrid.com . They are the ones
    that posted the 1400 Alaska properties averaging $440 an acre and now
    have that free State Land toolbar that has thousands of parcels across
    the US, many at bargain basement prices.

    How wind power works

    Wind
    turbines capture the wind's kinetic energy to power a generator that
    produces electricity. Wind generators have four main parts: blades (also
    known as rotors), a power shaft, gears and a generator. The wind drives
    the blades, which turns the shaft, which powers the generator and
    electricity is produced.

    http://www.lowimpactliving.com/pages...ts/wind-power ?
    Consumers
    can purchase wind units for home use. There are medium-size units that
    can fulfill all of the electric needs of a home, or smaller units that
    can be used as a supplemental power supply. A wind system typically
    lowers a home's electric bill by 50-90% depending on the size of the
    system and the wind patterns of the site.

    Wind power systems are
    most practical in rural areas or for consumers with an acre or more of
    land. But check with your neighbors and local zoning laws – you may be
    able to set up a small system in a suburban area.

    Depending on
    the size of your site and your energy consumption patterns, you’ll
    likely need a turbine rated in the 5-15 kilowatt range to make an impact
    on your energy needs.

    Here is the other half of the system.
