How much energy does a personal wind turbine produce?
By personal wind turbine, I mean not one of those gigantic ones, but a smaller one that you can have in your own yard, or on top of your roof.

From what i've researched on the internet and seen, You might be able to actually make a working model that can be used for something small like home lighting, etc.......but forget about running your many kitchen appliances on it....Most of them are inefficient electric motors that use high amperages. Which tends to kill batteries. There is no way you'd be able to generate long term constant power enough for reliable use of ...say ... a mircrowave oven.
Some of the medium sized wind turbines may be able to do so, but now your talking more money, more room, more engineering.............
You'd be better off with solar panels.
