Where can I find a reputable turbine manufacturer and/or installer?
The National Renewable Energy Laboratory is currently testing numerous small turbines and making all the information publicly available on its website. Installation is generally arranged by representatives of the manufacturer. Several have a very precise way of handling installation, including determining the best place on your property to place the turbine and catch the best wind. The American Wind Energy Association has a list of turbine manufacturers in the United States.
