ABSTRACT
The article focuses on wind-generated energy and its potential for adoption by homeowners. The author notes the relative popularity of solar and wind generated power and how renewable power, especially solar, has been encouraged by U.S. federal subsidies. He discusses how state subsidies and a tax credit for wind power enacted by a 2008 U.S. congressional bill will help grow the market for home wind-turbines.
