Farmers interested in wind power for their home and farm may now invest in an inexpensive turbine from BTI Wind Energy and the Harvest the Wind Network. Among the renewable and “green” products that Farm Industry News published in the past year, these small turbines drew considerable interest among our readers.

The wind turbines start at about $30,000 for the S-250 model that handles home needs of 10,000 to 15,000 kW-hr./yr. Larger models like the E-3120 are designed for small commercial operations and will provide 195,000 to 240,000 kW-hr./yr. of output requiring a three-phase connection. Pricing does not include maintenance agreement, shipping or installation.
