Day 271 of our Green Year: Wind Power

Well, at the farm we have decided to make the switch to wind power, like we are with solar power. We are hoping to find a good and small wind turbine that will give us the ability to supplement the power generated at our ranch, which will come from solar power. This will be no easy task though, and we are even looking at plans for making our own wind turbine.

It probably won't be by the end of April, but the ranch will be going to wind power in the near future, hopefully this year.

Adding wind power to our ranch will be a great mix with the solar power. It will be expensive obviously, but it will help us become completely off the grid in the future.
