President, Barack Obama’s new economic stimulus package could boost the small wind turbine industry by 30 to 40 per-cent annually.

The stimulus provides a 30% tax credit to consumers who invest in the turbines.

Unlike the large wind turbines, the small turbines are targeted towards business and property owners.

The wind turbines might best be suited to rural properties, however there is movement to install this alternative energy technology in cities, too.

A volunteer organization, the Urban Wind Task Force has distributed 27 wind-monitoring stations throughout  San Francisco to survey sites for potential turbine installations.

Last August, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg proposed installing small wind turbines on top of city bridges and sky scrapers. He later withdrew from this decision saying he wasn’t sure the project was feasible.

The question is, would you purchase a small wind turbine for your home or business?

If you’re interested in purchasing this environmentally efficient form of technology, go to the Wind Powering America website for more details.
