Small Wind Electric Systems: A North Carolina Consumer's Guide
Small Wind Electric Systems: A North Carolina Consumer's Guide Small Wind Electric Systems: A North Carolina Consumer's Guide provides consumers with enough information to help them determine whether a small wind electric system can provide all or a portion of the energy they need for their home or business based on their wind resource, energy needs, and their economics. Topics discussed in the guide include how to make a home more energy efficient, how to choose the correct turbine size, the parts of a wind electric system, how to determine whether enough wind resource exists, how to choose the best site for a turbine, how to connect a system to the utility grid, and whether it's possible to become independent of the utility grid using wind energy. In addition, the cover of the guide contains a state wind resource map and a list of state incentives and state contacts for more information.
