Hello everyone, ok I started a post last week about building a small windmill to power lights for our veggie grow room, I have become more convinced about building a larger system to power the whole house. By our calculations we would need a windmill to generate at least 1-2k of power per hour. Now most of the systems we have looked at cost around $5,000- $20,000, not an option on our budget. I have recieved alot of feedback from people who claim you can build one alot cheaper. If anyone out there has built your own windmill or solar system please let me know how much it cost and how much power you generated and where you bought your plans from. We are from NY and I have to admit this state is light years behind alternate energy sources so please any info would be greatly appreciated.
