The Palm Springs, CA windmill-generator farm looks awesome from I-10. I encountered it on my way to Sunnyvale, CA this past weekend. I do have a question about the information on your website. See details below.

Website information:
"A wind turbine's cost can range upwards to $300,000 and can produce 300 kilowatts - the amount of electricity used by a typical household in a month."

I understand kilowatt as a measure of energy rate (or unit of power) -- not an amount of energy, as it would be implied on you website. Do you mean 300 kilowatt-hours?

Thanks
