Healthier, More Environmentally Friendly Alternatives for Energy - Wind Power Costs

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.
