Summary

Wind energy today is a booming worldwide industry. The technology has truly come of age, with better, more reliable machinery and a greater understanding of how and where wind power makes sense - from the independent developer to the grid-connected utility-wide perspective. Heightened concerns about our ravaged environment and our dependence on dwindling fossil fuels have stimulated a resurgence of interest in wind energy - an abundant and renewable resource. Wind Power is a completely revised and expanded edition of Paul Gipe's definitive 1993 book Wind Power for Home and Business. In addition to expanded sections on gauging wind resources and siting wind turbines, this edition includes new examples and case studies of successful wind systems, international sources for new and used equipment, and hundreds of colour photographs and illustrations.
