Sanity check: $51,000 for a wind turbine that produces $582 per year will recover its initial cost in 87 years, if we naively assume it can be maintained at zero cost. Even if we assume steep growth in the cost of electricity (7% per year) and zero maintenance, the break even point still is at least several decades, much longer than the equipment will actually survive. Economically this project is unjustifiable, and amounts Guess Yellow Bag

On average, CHMS uses 100,000 kilowatt hours per month, said Sue Kamuda, director of buildings and grounds for the district. The new turbine is projected to produce somewhere between 5,000 and 8,000 kilowatt hours per year.
