Couple harnesses backyard power
Source: Columbia Daily Tribune.
A small wind turbine is installed on a farm in Boone County, Missouri. It will connect to the electric grid and run the electric meter backwards when the wind turbine's power isn't being used; thus, creating a credit with the electric company. The article briefly discusses Missouri's wind resource and wind energy payback period.
Wind energy payback periods can be examined with the Wind Energy Payback Period Workbook, which is a spreadsheet tool that can help you analyze the economics of a small wind electric system and decide whether wind energy will work for you.
