Build this high-power, state-of-the-art wind generator and
never again be subject to rising power costs or outages!

Did you know that a wind turbine such as the Zephyrus can lower a household's electric bill by 50% to 90%? And that in many states your utility will pay you for energy you put back into the system—that is, energy you generate beyond what you actually use?

It is not uncommon for wind turbine owners with all-electric homes to have monthly utility bills of only $8 to $15 for most of the year (costs may run higher during summer months with use of air conditioning). A federal Wind Energy Production Tax Credit (PTC) currently provides a credit of 1.9 cents per kilowatt-hour. The federal Renewable Energy Production Incentive provides cash payments to project owners based on the number of kilowatt-hours they generate. Also available are federal grants that can cover a substantial percentage of the cost of a wind turbine.

A typical home uses approximately 800-900 kWh per month. A single Zephyrus can produce up to 1660 kWh, (up to 2000 Watts at any given time). Construction Plans fully illustrates the building of a generator that provides power in winds as low as 8 mph and up to about 45 mph. At speeds above 45 mph, its self-protective circuits and braking systems kick in to prevent damage to the unit. You may greatly increase your energy production with the use of 2 or more systems.

The Zephyrus Wind Generator can be built in an ordinary home shop for as little as $800 (depending on sources of supply).
