How much does it cost to build your own wind turbine? And if you don’t want to build it, how much does a commercial wind turbine cost?
Great questions. Large commercial wind turbines can cost up to two million dollars, so unless you have A LOT of money, you might want to opt for something a little more reasonable. Depending on the shape, purchase agreement, size, type of machine and location, the cost of wind turbines vary. The price of residential and farm turbines are based on kilowatts, and 10 kilowatts cost $48,000. You can expect to pay between $2,800 and $4,800 per kilowatt with professionally constructed turbines.
That said, if you are up to the task of building your own wind turbine, there are home turbine kits that teach you how to make your own wind turbine for $200 or less. You can save more than $1,000 a year by using a wind turbine for power.
