The Earthtronics Honeywell turbine

The Earthtronics Honeywell turbine

Michigan-based Earthtronics [1] is giving the eco-minded one less excuse to rely on fossil-fuel based power.

The company will begin selling a Honeywell rooftop turbine [2] at ACE Hardware stores in the fall. The retailer [3] has more than 4,000 stores in the United States.

The price for the 2-kilowatt spinner is a bit high, at $4,500, and installation can set you back as much as $1,500, the company estimates.

But the devices are eligible for a 30-percent federal tax credit and can offset as much as 18 percent of a home’s electricity use. They also work in wind as wimpy as 2 mph.

There are still [4] local zoning laws to contend with [4]. Check with your local government office about the rules. And if they don’t have any local laws, tell them to get with it.

The American Wind Energy Association can help. [5]
