Publisher Comments:

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 homestead to a grid-connected utility-wide perspective. Heightened concerns about our environment mean that this resurgence of interest in wind — a natural and widespread power source — is here to stay.Wind Power is an up-to-date version 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 as well as international sources for new and used equipment.

Synopsis:

The most comprehensive guide to wind power and wind energy, written by one of the world's leading experts on the subject

The most comprehensive and up to date book with the greatest depth of experience in wind power. I have 12 books on wind power and Gipe is the best author and this is the newest book.
