Small Wind Turbines


Get the Details on Small Wind Projects
for your Farm and Home!

Small Wind Turbines (20 kw to 40 kw) could be part of your future!
Here's why: The Rural Wind Energy Development Act (S.673) proposes
a 5-year Federal Tax Credit of $1,500 per 1/2 kilowatt (kw) of capacity to
purchasers of small wind systems. The plain arithmetic: If a 20 kw
system costs $75,000 installed, this credit generates $60,000.
That's 80 percent of the total cost!
