There have been a few voices against the wind revolution, because of minor issues such as increased noise around wind farms, or some people simply being against a rather large metal tower in the immediate surroundings of their homes, but let’s face it: a few towers that produce no carbon emissions, no air pollution and that use natural and renewable sources to produce power are a million times better than filthy coal or the horror of a nuclear power plant. Fukushima should have taught us all a lesson.Remote communities worldwide are often relying on self built wind power generators in order to supply their houses and to reduce their carbon footprint. Wind technology is rapidly replacing outdated diesel generators, as they are both increasingly unreliable and dirty business. Needless to say, setting up and operating a wind energy generation system will completely eliminate your costly dependence on grid power making your life a tad more green, and giving you a tad more freedom.
