The market for residential wind turbines has been growing at about 25 percent a year.
Industry experts say homeowners who live in areas with high winds can save up to 80 percent off their monthly electric bills. Turbines, including installation, run from $12,000 to $50,000, and feed excess power into the grid, making your meter spin backwards.
Some states, offer incentives for homeowners to hook up to the wind.
