The first large windmill to produce electricity was the American multi-blade design, built in 1888. It's 12-kilowatt capabilities were later supposed by modern 70-100 kilowatt wind turbines. No prior art has been disclosed that uses a mechanical advantage of gravity and wind power combined to produce useful work. In addition, if you are worried about the ever approaching depression, there is nothing like starting a business selling a product and services that people will be interested in.

Small wind electric systems can deliver serious energy. This is just one lesson people are learning all around the world. Thus, we really have to consider using wind powered energy appliances as a strong contender for future production of renewable electricity. Many soon feel adjective as inexpensive energy sources became more widespread and grid power extended it's reach into rural areas useing small electric wind systems.

The second round of tax subsidies for wind power has focused on the Production Tax Credit (PTC), currently at 1.9 cents per kwh produced. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 included a 30% tax credit on new purchases of small wind energy systems across the United States with capacity of up to 100kW. On the other hand, the use of wind power for the production of electricity is 100% eco-friendly and therefore represents a worth while solution.

Off the coast of Cape Cod, the first offshore wind park is programmed for production and for testing of wind turbines and wind machines. It will be the first in the world of it's kind. Firstly, most of the turbines of this type only has an energy producing capacity which is fifty percent less efficient than those produced by horizontal axis wind turbines. Because there is no tower structure required, they cannot take full advantage of the higher wind speeds that are available on higher, elevated locations. Department of Energy, CABB research has produced several promising new adhesive systems. Faculty, staff and students involved with CABB would be able to readily contribute towards the development of bio renewable polymers.

The construction of a wind turbines can last a long time about a year to be exact and can be quite costly. One of the biggest disadvantages is the fact that they create a lot of noise which is fine if you live a few miles away but not so good if you're closer to the turbine. Some people feel it is the cost that prevents them from running to alternative methods, fearing that doing so may be out of their budget and as such, pushed out of their mind. The fact of the matter is there are no real unbeatable advantages to wind power sources, but they are a great way to live green.
