Lots of useful information
on April 25, 2012
This book not only covers the aspects of wind power you would expect to see, like everything from the science behind it, to buying a commercially made and professionally installed system, or doing a total roll your own, home-built option. However, it also goes into other helpful areas you might not immediately think of, but that could become big gotchas later. It has chapters on how to deal with planning and zoning boards, obtaining permits and variances, dealing with neighbors who are afraid your wind turbine will hurt their property values or ruin the neighborhood, and how to get financing for a wind power system. It is a great book with lots of useful information for anyone thinking about getting into wind power.
