As promised, I’m back with some super useful information on how to save money by using a grid. Using a wind turbine to produce energy can not only help you minimize your environmental impact, but it can also go a long way in saving you money.
A wind turbine system uses wind – a renewable energy source – to produce energy that can be either used directly within a home or other location, or the energy can be delivered back to the electrical utility through a grid-tie system.
In a grid-tie system, energy that is produced by the wind turbine is, essentially, sold to an electrical utility. In most cases, the electrical utility “buys” the energy by reducing the monthly electrical bill by the amount of wind energy that is created by the wind turbine. Remember: in many cases, wind turbines are used to supplement energy from a utility company and may not be the sole source of energy for a home, office, or other location.
Here’s how the grid-tie system works:
First, erect the wind turbine. A wind turbine can be erected in many locations and in many different fashions. For example, some wind turbines have 3 turbines that spin while others have more. Likewise, some wind turbines are 8 feet in diameter while others may be significantly smaller. Different wind turbine models produce different results. Therefore, individuals …
