payback times
by Nigel Riddle at 2008-03-06 12:01:38 (Forum::Public::Wind)
Thinking of wind turbine, but wondering about realistic payback times
I own a farm in Dorset overlooking sea, we have wide ranging views and therefore fairly uninterrupted wind. The wind data base puts us at 6.2m/s at 10m high.

I obviously apreciate the 'green' side of wind power and that is part of the reason I would like to get a wind turbine, however I do not wish to waste money on a turbine when other energy saving schemes maybe more cost effective.

We currently use about 20,000 kwh electricity, I could spend up to 30k if sensible.

I know that alot of it is so site dependent.
Any ideas on times and which turbine to look at?
