icon Tilt-up Tower

World Power Technologies of Duluth, MN has a new windmill with a 20 kW turbine. This would generate approximately 46,800 kWh per year, enough for several homes. There is currently a bill in the house of representatives that would give you a 30% tax credit for going with wind. We'll see where that goes. The real beauty of this thing is a 24 meter(80') tilt up tower. This means you could put it up and get it down for maintenance and other situations such as a major wind that could knock it over ... say in May, 2003.
