Default Micro turbines/windmills

http://store.motorwavegroup.com/

They are way more efficient than standard windmills.
- work at wind speeds of 1m/sec tot 30m/sec
- cheaper
- better efficiency converting wind into electricity.
- adjust better to changing wind directions.
- more portable

Some little more research, then I'll get some.
Wind speeds around my place etc.

What say you?

The wind creates torque which turns an alternator or generator. This creates d/c current which may be used
directly or converted to a/c current through an inverter.
your radio plugs into the inverter and you have music.

So what do you do when there is no wind? You store your
energy in a battery for use at your convenience.
