producing windmills for sale.
converts wind energy to heat, lights and hot water anywhere the wind
you may charge batteries and provide utility grade electricity for
your home or charge your electric car . The Mini-BRUTE
needs no grid, no utility company and no permits. It has no
connection to existing home wiring. Installation is available. The
windmill comes with a 40' cable winch, tilt-down tower, (includes guy
wires) and instructions.

asked questions about windmills:
about windmills with less than 3kw output? ...
windmills are a swindle!” - Low Tech Magazine 2009
does crane service cost? Crane
service typically costs more than $1,000 each time they set the crane
up. Our windmills need no crane service.
storing energy viable?
Yes. If you are lucky enough to have windpower (a cheap source of
energy) it makes sense to store excess energy for use later. This is
commonly done by battery bank and inverter for an off-grid situation.
It is cheaper and more cost-effective to store wind energy as BTU's
of hot water. This serves both for domestic use (baths, dishes,
showers, etc) and for home / shop heat. Stored BTU's of hot water can
be easily changed into BTU's of hot air for an existing furnace.

Tubes are simply tubes buried in your yard that provide very low
cost pre-conditioned air for heating and cooling. The Earth acts as
a big thermal battery and keeps the tubes at around 50 degrees F.
Air from these tubes is circulated through your furnace and
structure or just blown into a greenhouse. Properly designed and
operated, the Earth Tube System will not raise or lower the ground
temperature around your tubes and can not have a mold or fungal
systems ( know as “Geothermal”, Geothermal Heat Pumps,
or “Ground Source Heat Pumps” ) require drilling, ( a
well drilling machine and crew ) pumps (electricity) anti-freeze
solution, and mechanical heat exchangers. Installed, they typically
offer the same geo-thermal benefit, without the cost.

Tube heat Exchangers (ETHE) have a proven history in the USA. In one
case a man from Nebraska, Russ Finch, heated his house, his shop and
his greenhouse with this method for 30 years. It was dirt cheap to
install and cut his energy costs to virtually nothing. He profitably
raised over 100 types of plants and fruits, including bananas mostly
with this earth heat (about 50 degrees). The USDA confirmed there
was no mold or fungus present after 25 years. Read about Earth Tubes

earth tubes for 25 years. They

rural applications a closed loop, sealed system: Ideal for heating
shop buildings, greenhouses, etc:
Low powered fans automatically
provide air from the earth tubes until the building temperature
reaches 50 degrees.
For home use the 50 degree air is made
available to your existing furnace substantially lowering heating
costs while providing virtually free air conditioning.
(DIY) You install . Got your own backhoe? We provide you with the
plans for your specific installation ( important due to soil
conditions, etc ) including digging instructions, tube type and
layout, inlet and outlet enclosures, fan type and requirements. You
do the digging and installation to provide Earth Tube Heat and
Cooling for your building.
2) We install. We do a complete
install as above. We install a minimum of 8 feet deep. Guaranteed
against mold as long as the system is in use.
Price $ depends on
building size, soil type and location.
