No matter what part of the country you live in, your region is susceptible to power outages. Snow and ice storms, high winds, and lightning often knock out power for a few hours up to a few days, or longer. In summer heat, overloads to the electrical grid have caused massive power failures. When they occur, it becomes a challenge to save the food in your fridge or freezer, and sometimes to carry on our normal life. If you or someone in your home has health needs requiring electrical equipment to treat, the outage is more than just inconvenient – it can be very dangerous.

Backup Power from a Mini Wind Turbine

These realities are increasing in a country with an electrical grid already that is already overloaded, and that is why significant and growing numbers of savvy homeowners are now using mini wind turbines as a backup source of power. They give you a readily available source of stored energy the instant the power goes out, and they continue to make energy for use and storage as long as you need it.

Homeowners who begin integrating mini wind turbines into their home “grid” as a way to save money on energy costs realize fantastic additional benefits in those times when electricity from the grid is unavailable. Losing a freezer full of food will cost the average family more than some mini wind turbines to purchase. That’s food for thought!
