First, the wind turbine discussed is supposed to produce 2500 KWh, not 2500 KW, per year.

Assuming that this is not an overestimate (which is probably a bad assumption), this much electricity is worth about $250 per year at the residential consumer average price of $0.10 per KWh. At the wholesale price of electricity it would only be worth about half as much,$125 per year.

Assuming the 20 year life advertised on the Air Source Technologies website is not an overestimate (again, probably a bad assumption), there is an outside chance that this wind turbine might produce $5,000 worth of electricity in the next two decades.

How much does the wind turbine cost? That number was somehow missing for the in-depth investigative reporting presented in this article.

Please do not respond by telling me that much of the installation cost can be off-set by state and federal grants and renewable energy credits. This just means the money is coming out of my pocket, not yours.
