Home wind power is the second most used source of energy and electricity in the home after solar power. It provides a most reliable energy and power source that can generate a high electricity output at a very cheap cost. However, not all people who have installed wind turbines in their homes enjoy the maximum benefits of electricity in their homes. Some of such home owners are frustrated that even with high and strong winds in their area, the turbines only generate minimum electricity power. So what are they doing wrong and how can you use home wind power successfully?
First, choose the right location to place your wind turbines for maximum power output. Often home owners place the turbines where they do not experience maximum wind power or where the wind is often interrupted by tall buildings and trees. Ensure the turbines in your home are placed in an open area and at high ground. To choose the right location for your wind turbines you must understand not only the area where you reside but also the wind characteristics for your area. For strong winds the turbines can be placed at a lower area, but for slow and gentle winds you may need to place the turbines in a higher ground. Home Windmill Power Generator
Study and consider the needs of your home when building the turbines. Different wind turbines have different power output depending on their size and design.
Understanding the amount of electricity that your home requires is the first step towards choosing the right design and size of turbine for your home. In addition, to enjoy maximum wind power you could mix the sizes and designs of the wind turbines. For example you could build two small turbines for the strong winds and one large one for when winds are gentle. In doing so you can generate enough electricity for your home whatever the wind conditions are.
It is advisable to include battery storage into the design of your wind turbine. Batteries help to save the power generated by the turbines but not used at that time. You can revert to the power saved when your system is not producing enough electricity. This is especially helpful for people who are off the grid at all times. Becoming your own successful wind energy producer requires that you have a backup plan for days when the wind is low and the power generated from your turbines is not enough. The storage plan for your wind power system should be such that it is able to cater for all your needs and requirements should anything go wrong with the turbines.
Finally, you need to understand the environment where you live that is your residential area. Take into consideration things such as tall buildings and trees that could cause interruptions to your wind power. Also visit the local meteorological station for advice with regard to the design and size of turbine you would like to build and the effects of the wind characteristics in your area.
