  1. - Wind farm could obstruct human activities if placed in low altitudes - mitigation: erect turbines in high altitudes. - Birds and other flying objects get killed if they fly past a wind turbine farm; birds migratory path are altered in the long run. This can possibly be mitigated by studying the pattern and path of birds' migration prior to erecting a wind farm. - Turbines can only operate within a range of wind speed not too low and slow and not too fast; usually between 4 metres/second and 25 metres/s and turbines are designed accordingly. If wind speed is slower than 4 m/s, then there is no supply of energy (if you are solely dependent on wind. If wind speed is faster than 25 m/s, the turbine is designed to cut off to prevent damages (meaning no energy for you) - mitigation: energy storage (e.g. in batteries) during times of optimum wind flow will help at the "too slow" and "too fast" winddy periods.

    Home made wind generator

    A combination of home solar panels-wind turbines can produce much of the power required by the average home. Small wind powered turbines are manufactured by a number of companies and can be readily set up either through guyed tower or free standing tower. The recommended tower height is about 12 feet, power is about 500watt-10Kwatt.
  3. Before you buy home wind turbines, there are some things that you need to consider. First, you have to determine local laws on installing small wind systems in your city or locality. Then, you also need to choose a home wind turbine that is suitable to the size of your home and the size of your property. Furthermore, you also need to look for an online store that will not only provide you with quality small wind turbines but will give you value for your money as well.
