Wind Turbines Or Solar Panels?
This is a common question. Normally solar panels are more effective and yields more energy, but obviously, if you’re not living in a sunny place, it might not be optimal. Wind turbines/generators are a great alternative for when the weather doesn’t let you use solar panels efficiently.
Here on Green Planet Solar, we focus on solar panels, but we have partners who knows everything about and offers home or residential windmills and wind generators.
