Book Review: Wind Power Basics

"Wind Power Basics: A Green Energy Guide" is a step-by-step handbook designed for anyone wanting to understand all aspects of the energy source.

Author Dan Chiras first notes the history of wind power in the United States, how it was set aside as electrical grids were established and how and why people are returning to its use. He makes the technology and terminology easy to understand, while warning of its possible pitfalls (unhappy neighbors), as well as making clear the case for using green power. Some of the topics include site assessment, tower installation and various systems that work in different situations.
