Abstract

This consumer’s guide gives the average American citizen knowledge and directions on how to power their household with alternative energy options. Research was done to find cost effective ways of installing a photovoltaic system and/or a micro wind turbine system. The payback periods were calculated of each system to give the consumer a realistic expectation of the longterm financial benefits of solar and wind energy. The values displayed in this guide are based off the residential information of Chatham, Massachusetts and the consumer can use our sources to determine statistics pertaining to their own home.
