It looks like we're going to need a bigger cart: Wind turbines come to Home Depot

As reported by Preston over at Jetson Green , the particular product being offered by Home Depot is the sleek (read: quiet), grid-connected Skystream 3.7 , a unit described by Southwest Windpower as “the first compact, all-inclusive personal wind generator (with controls and inverter built in) designed to work in very low winds.” Included with the actual turbine is Skyview monitoring software that allows homeowners to track the Skystream 3.7’s performance from the comfort of their PC. Weighing 205 pounds, the unit comes with a five-year warranty and is capable of producing up to 400 kilowatt hours of clean electricity per month (based on prelim data).
