Glad it was approved!!  Do you have it fully functional and can you monitor how much electricity is produced?

Look into selling the RECs (Renewable Energy Credits) for the kWs it produces, do you have it set up to meter the output? It won't be a ton of money but it will be something on top of your useage savings.

If I were a color, I'd be bitter brown. As in Cleveland Browns fan bitter....

Thanks!  Yep, runs my garage door opener.  I don't have a way, yet, to monitor actual electricity produced.

Very cool!  Thanks for sharing the photos and the whole project, from start to finish.

Apparently there is a gentleman from Tremont planning to put one on top of an apartment, does anyone know anything about this?

Yeppir.  The fella who owns the flatiron-shaped building on the corner of Professor and W. 10th is in the process of getting permits to put an Energy Ball on its roof.  It won't be terribly visible, though, except from a bit of a distance.

Just a quick update, I went in front of the Zoning Appeals Board this morning and I am proud to say I am the first city resident with a legal wind turbine in the city.

Well I started a webpage detailing the project and other similar projects I have done. I wouldn't mind some "constructive" criticism from the UO community.  It is still very under construction.  Be nice...
