i have heard of power whatever i forget, that if u produce power , more than u use, u sell it back to the power company,i think by federal law,the power co. has to buy it back, im not postive but pretty sure,, but what u said is the same thing, and probably the easiest way to handle it,,this may be old news to parts of the county, its not at the house here, but i got a letter from the power company at the lake which is on tva, and they told me they will be changing out meters, that can be read by remolt through the lines, so they will not need a meter reader, i just got that letter a couple days ago..take careSSC wrote:The Skystream 3.7 wind generator connects directly to your home. When the wind is blowing, your home is powered (in part) by Skystream; when itís not, your home is seamlessly powered by your utility as usual. During periods of strong winds, Skystream can actually produce excess electricity. Depending on your utility, your meter could spin backwardsógiving you credit for a later date.
This sounds like it is right on the money for home savings , worth looking into....and a proper subject !!
