Yes, the pictures are big but it's better for seeing detail.
These are located about 7 miles outside of Washington Iowa on 170th Street.
They were just put up and is truly where I believe the future is headed
in electric production. I would love to have a small 15kw residential unit
in my back yard, maybe someday when I have the $30,000 I'll get one.
There is a company in Des Moines Iowa offering a 12kw unit without storage
which wouldn't be bad either. The residual power left over that the 12kw unit
produces would just be put on the grid instead of into storage. Either way
your energy bill would just be for administrative fees(usually $35.00) to
keep you on the grid should you need it. The reimbursement for the power you
put on the grid would outweight the power you pull from the grid, thus the
energy company would be paying you each month. With that said, it wouldn't
take long for the windmills to pay themselves off.
