Does small wind energy or backyard wind turbines make sense? Why do we see so much rooftop solar, but so little rooftop wind?

00:00 Intro – Rooftop solar’s domination in the urban renewables sector
00:38 Why don’t we see more rooftop wind turbines?
01:38 Quality of solar resources – Solar irradiation in different places around the world
02:40 Quality of wind resources – Urban wind effects, wind shear effects, available power in wind
04:53 Available wind power in Kolding vs Canberra
05:40 Other points of comparison – Benefits gained from a rural location, noise and vibration issues, maintenance required
07:47 Applications for urban wind technologies – Off-grid properties, high-wind speed locations, rural farms, non-utility and aesthetic purposes, backyard engineering or DIY
09:54 Outro
10:11 Thanks to Brilliant for sponsoring this video!

In this video I’ll take you through the science and engineering reasons why rooftop solar is much easier than small wind, and show that the same wind turbine on a roof is likely to generate *less than 10%* of the energy a turbine of the same size would generate in a nearby wind farm.

And, because I know most of you found this video because you already know you want to do a DIY wind energy project (they’re fun!) or have an off-grid project that needs wind energy to diversify your energy, I have included some resources (Hugh Piggott’s great books on DIY wind energy and certified small wind turbines if you want to buy one).

installing a wind turbine at home | how much power will it make?

Alternative Energy No Comments »

In this video, we install a 300 Watt vevor windmill / turbine. obviously this 300 Watt claim is massively overrated and we will never see that in the real world but no regardless of how much it makes it’s all in the spirit of green energy and will all help reduce the bills.

Wind Turbine for Home outbeats PV Solar Panels in 2023?!

Alternative Energy No Comments »

NEW Wind Turbines for Home really Replacing Solar Panel?

Small wind turbines for home could play an important role for off grid living. A 15 kWh peak solar system that manages to supply the whole house with solar panels, produces only a fraction of renewable energy in the winter.
And this is exactly where wind turbine for home come into play for off grid users.

this is why we are looking for the best wind turbine for home 2023 and took a closer look to new micro wind turbines for home from companies such as skywind ng , the power collective Ridgeblade and Flower turbine.
Can these home wind turbines really replace Solar panels and guarantee using wind energy for living off the grid?

231. Geothermal 101 – How to heat your home with 400% efficiency

Alternative Energy No Comments »

Geothermal is the heating system of the future. With efficiencies of 400% and no emissions it’s just the ticket for fighting climate change and oh, it’s also 700% efficient at air conditioning, perfect for those 40 Celsius summer heat waves. This week on Green Energy Futures we talk to Devon Winczura and Steve Oslanski of Envirotech Geothermal who show us why geothermal heating and cooling is the wave of the future.

The Challenges of a Wind Turbine on Your Home

The truth about a wind turbine on your home. Get Surfshark VPN at and enter promo code UNDECIDED for 83% off and 3 extra months for free! We’ve seen wind turbines popping up everywhere in the last few years for grid scale renewable energy installations. Solar panels for home has been a disruptive technology, but what if we could scale down wind turbines and install them on our home? In theory it sounds like a good idea to diversify our home power generation, but does it make sense to install micro wind turbines on your home vs. just installing solar panels? Let’s see if we can come to a decision on this.
