    Scope & contentWind Power for your home explains in detail how to exploit this energy source. This book is a guide to keeping costs low, explaining how to evaluate the wind speeds in local areas so one can determine the size and type of system that will best suit one's needs.
    Each component that make up the wind-electric system is explored in depth such as the battery storage system, rotor, generator etc. Choosing the right location is also explored.

    The book also examines the synchronous inverter, a device that enables one to use wind generated power when you need it and permits you to send any surplus supply back to the lines of the power company. Wind-driven electric systems on the market are surveyed. Specifications are listed and prices are given.

    The book also gives advice on second hand parts, manufacturer and distributor details. There is also a section on do-it-yourself. This offers complete plans for building a working wind-driven power system that can provide home lighting or power workshop tools.
