Abstract

Our project goal is to develop a set of guidelines that a consumer can use to become better informed about wind power and help determine whether or not investing in residential wind power is a good decision. Advisability is determined by several factors, including: average wind speed in the area,the size and openness of the residential lot, any zoning laws or tax incentives in the area, the cost of electricity, the cost of installing a turbine, and the amount of time required to repay the investment. Specific examples of how the guidelines would be used to analyze different scenarios are included.
