By giving you some idea of windmill pricing, you will have an idea of how you can save in the long term view of owning a wind turbine. What this consists of and how to go about having an alternate source of energy of your own.
Putting an exact price for a water pump or Wind Turbine (windmill) would be impossible to do. A more practical solution is a pricing range. Many things must be factored into the price. How tall the tower will be, is an example.
The average cost of a wind turbine can be any where from $1,500.00 to over $4,000.00. This depends on the consumer, and the manufacturer you are purchasing it from. The tower raising kit averages from $300.00 to $500.00. This is something you have to buy, regardless of the wind turbine. The actual height of the tower is also taken into consideration.
Pricing is basically set on a wind turbine's performance. Simple wind turbine kits have the lower price range. Turbines equipped with higher battery charging, faster blade rotation, and accessories, to name a few details, are in the higher priced bracket. The blades are also a consideration. Although virtually all the turbine models are based on the design of an airplane propeller, the materials used to make the blades are of many different materials. This can also increase the price as well. Sometimes there is also an installation fee.
Water pumps that I have researched range from $300.00 to $1,000.00. These were designed especially for aqua and marine usage. But once again, it depends on the consumer's needs and the company that is selling it.
The main consideration put into the cost of buying the wind turbine (windmill) or the water pump is based on 'wattage' the machine is capable of producing. The more wattage it can produce, the higher in price range it will be. If the wattage output is lower the machine will cost less.
Most Wind turbines (windmills) and water pumps are made to look sleek and not big and bulky. Sleek enhances performance but it also interests the consumer too.
A homeowner would not want a wind turbine or water pump machine that is equipped to be put in a wind turbine field or plant. These turbines, which are larger cost a larger amount of money and will not be effective for the small home. Smaller wind turbines and pumps are specially designed for homes and the cost is lower.
The price of a wind turbine seems to be of little amount, when compared to the savings of the future. Having an alternate energy source affects the economy and the environment, providing the next generation with resources as well.
