Small Wind Systems

A small wind system generates electricity for individual homes, farms, and small businesses. Small wind systems need plenty of room to operate. They benefit people living in isolated areas where there is no access to an electricity grid. Some people install them to reduce or eliminate the electricity they get from utility companies.
