Doit-yourself power generation is seen as a growing trend. The fact that it claims to save on carbon emissions gives the wind turbine added appeal.

Home owners the windmill is said to generate  between 20%-60% of a single homes energy at around 400 euros.

The twin-blade WT400W is rated at 400 W and is expected to cost about 2,500 euros ($3,505*).  The triple-blade WT1kW is rated at 1 kW and is expected to cost about 3,500 euros ($4,905*).

  1. Sorry, the price is just not practical. Most of these wind units are just the Chevy Volt of the green community. We won’t pay 40,000 for the Volt and we won’t pay $4,000 for these turbines. Some movie actors in California will but real America won’t.
