Wind Power Costs
The cost of a wind power system depends on how much
power you wish to generate. If you want to supplement
your existing grid-based power, or supplement a solar
system, you can get a small system that will run between
$5,000-10,000. If you want to install a larger system
that will cover most of your power needs, the system
will cost between $20,000-40,000.
Many states offer rebate or tax credit programs to encourage
the uptake of small wind energy systems. Depending on
the size of the system you buy, the amount of power
you use, and any tax or other incentives you may qualify
for, your payback period should be 5-15 years. Like
solar, wind power is a long-term green investment.
