They may extend over a very large area and have a broad area of influence, but physically occupy only three to five percent of the total land area for the turbine Wind energy systems can be one of the most cost-effective Impact of large wind energy systems in California book renewable energy systems.

Depending on your wind resource, a small wind energy system can lower your electricity bill slightly or up to %, help you avoid the high costs of extending utility power lines to remote locations, and sometimes can provide DC or off-grid power.
