The Skystream 3.7 Residential Wind Generator. At last, a way to stick it to those utility company blowhards. The press release talks of
$80,000 $8,000 purchase price, to supply 40–90% of an average home’s energy needs. Waddya think, true or a lot of hot air? Stick one of these on your rose garden, add a glob of solar panels on the roof and you’ll soon be bigger than Enron. And twice as rich.
Skystream’s low cost and low profile provides homeowners an affordable energy supplement that’s appropriate for installation in many residential areas around the country. With no batteries, Skystream 3.7 connects directly to the home to supply power. When the wind is not blowing, the home is powered by the electric utility. Depending on the local utility, excess electricity can be sold back to the utility or used at a later date.
