Where to Place Wind Turbines

If you've wondered where the best areas are for placing wind turbines, you can find your answer at the U.S. Department of Energy web site on wind power. It has a collection of detailed maps that wind power enthusiasts may spend all day poring over. Maps include installed wind power (no surprise, California is head and shoulders above the rest) and wind resource potential on both a national and state-by-state scale. It looks as if the coasts and mountainous states show the greatest potential for development. Here in Massachusetts, the coastline looks like a great bet for developing wind power. If you are considering installing a wind turbine on your property, you might want to look over the maps to see the potential your area holds.

what a fantastic idea! Your own personal generator which releases 0 toxins into the atmosphere. But the question is, how much would one spend on windpower self-sufficiency?
