4 Reasons to Love Wind Turbines

Wind turbines can be a great way to generate electricity for your home in a more sustainable way, but for those going “off-grid,” they are practically essential.

While many people can benefit from using wind turbines for power generation, those determined to take self-sufficient living to the max and go entirely off-grid find wind turbines to be an indispensable addition.

In combination with solar panels, wind turbines can help provide all of the electricity a home needs to run all of the essentials.

Here are 4 reasons why wind turbines are an off-gridder’s best friend:

For off-grid homes, energy needs are more acute than for grid-tied homes. Off-gridders are very much on their own when it comes to power (and practically everything else)….

Here are some reasons off-grid people love their home wind turbines.

Weather-Resistant Power

Power in wind or shine, day and night. This is important, especially when you’re off-grid and redundant energy sources are a must.

Better Battery Life

Batteries of any kind are a significant investment…. A wind turbine adds performance and life to any batteries, particularly those that thrive on staying charged….

Reduction in Gas Generator Use

It kind of takes the fun out of being disconnected from the fossil fuel grid if you’re dependent on a fossil fuel generator…. Having solar with wind added can drastically reduce the amount of time you spent running off the gas generator….

Lifestyle Improvements

…………………………………..

The advantages of combining wind and solar go beyond system performance and floating batteries – it’s an enhancement to the off-grid lifestyle as a whole.
