I was driving along the road East of Kokomo, Indiana when I stopped and made this video.

I am on a road trip of the USA, as I was traveling East of Kokomo, Indiana I saw a wind turbine in the front yard of a house. Now, we drive very fast in the USA, and it takes roughly one half mile to find a place to turn around. Sadly, I often just pass on by some of the best things because of the time, cost, and danger of trying to turn around and make a video.
I am trying desperately to slow my life down in the USA, to slow the traffic down, to refuse to become part of the USA culture of speed. Well, I stopped myself long enough to view this wind turbine.
How much does it cost? Is this sustainable?
Generally, these type of projects like wind turbines, solar, and methane, etc. are not sustainable. My rule of thumb is this, if you can go build it yourself in the back yard in a day, it probably is a good idea. If you need to buy it, you are probably are buying an expensive play toy.
I could not find the price on their page --- standard for expensive play toys.
