As Ive stated in other sections of this website celebrities like Jay Leno and Ed Begley Jr. have decided to place rooftop wind turbines on their homes and garages.

Some homeowners state that vertical axis wind turbines in general are a little quieter than their horizontal axis counterparts. Rooftop wind turbines generally come with a kilowatt (kW) rating such as 5 kW 10 kW or 20 kW that reflects how much electricity one can expect it to generate for ones home or business. It is important to either have a large enough rooftop wind generator or several that add up to enough in order to provide the needed power.
