Windmills can generate 80% of home’s electricity.

Wind is a wonderfully renewable source of energy, but until now ordinary consumers who wanted to live off of — or contribute to — the electrical grid had no way to capture it. That’s where the Skystream 3.7 comes in. It’s a wind turbine designed especially for home use. Installed on a 35-ft. tower, it connects to standard utility hookups and starts turning in breezes as low as 8 m.p.h. It can provide up to 80% of the average household’s electricity and shave $600 or more off annual utility costs.

Inventor: Southwest Wind Power
Availability: Now; about $10,000, including installation
