Wind generators for home use are becoming more popular in everyday American homes because they are becoming more and more affordable. Most people don't realise that there are 3 distinct options when it comes to residential windmills for electricity.

Firstly, you have the cheapest option which is to put the windmill together yourself using new or second hand parts. This is the cheapest option, costing you around $150 - $200 per windmill. The second option is to buy a new or used windmill off Amazon or ebay. This option is slightly more expensive and will set you back about $1000 per unit. The third option is to buy a complete system which will be professionally manufactured and installed. These packages will cost you no less than $50,000.

Under $200

This is a great option for most people to get started. All you'll need is a
good set of instructions and to find all of the necessary parts. You can either buy the parts new or used depending on your budget and preference. Most of the good guides have a list of the places / websites to look at when shopping for parts. The guide itself will cost you no more than fifty bucks.

If you have some tools and experience you can even make some of the parts yourself, such as the blades, post and mounting. This is by far the cheapest way to get your very own wind generators for home use.


If you're
not that technically minded and don't mind paying slightly more for a wind turbine, you can buy them already built on sites like These wind generators for home use are pretty much the same standard as the ones you can put together yourself.

The only difference is that someone else has bought the parts and put them together. The people selling these types of units will be either a one man band or small local business. You can pick these types of windmills up for under a grand.


The very
top shelf windmills for home are the ones manufactured on a large scale by the big energy companies like GE Windpower and Bergey. These units come with 30 year guarantees and are totally hassle free.

They will be delivered, installed and serviced regularly. If you want to get your own wind power the easy way then this is your best choice. However, and here's the kicker, these packages will cost you nearly a hundred grand all up! Check out the bergey website here for an example of a system which costs over $47,000.

The Best Wind Generators For Home Use

You can use the information presented in this article to make up your own mind.

However, our suggestion is that you go for the first option.

You can make as many wind generators for home use as you like for under $200 each and the more you make the better you'll get at doing it.

Even if you make a few mistakes it'll still work out cheaper in the long run, and who knows, you might even start to make some easy cash by making then in your spare time and selling them online like so many others are doing nowadays.
