    Default investing in wind mill

    The only attraction in wind mill is the accelerated depreciation allowed in your income tax. If you calculate the income and expenditure for ten years and take the tax rebate also into consideration, you will find that you have not gained anything. IT WILL NEVER GENERATE THE POWER PROMISED BY THE MACHINE MANUFACTURERS. Instead of that, you can invest the same money in Mutual funds which will give you atleast 25% gain every year tax free and doing nothing ! Or you can buy a few housing plots which will grow several times over a short period of time.
    Wind mill manufacturers are simply swallowing all the profits immediately on selling the machine.Can any body justify the price of 5 crores for a 600KW wind mill? 5 crores is 500 lakhs! I can buy two piper aircrafts for that price!!!! I have studied this subject for 15 years and this is my advice for you.

    Default wind mill investment

    Dear sir,

    About wind mill query i pleased to share about my view.
    One wind mill(15 mills) second sales of each Rs.70 Lacs. Total cost of Rs. 10 Crore(Approxi).In tenth year your return will be Rs.37 crores(Approxi) including usage of wind energy,land cost,after deducting depreication, maintainence cost.If we are thinking in business side it is not worth.If you are using electrical energy for your usage it is worth for that.Otherwise it will be asset.Government is also insisting the shifting to non-conventional energy.Wind mill is the one of the best options .

    Hi Vasu,

    I am Subodh from Maharashtra. I beleive your study in wind mill is very good. Thats the reason am asking ou this question.

    Can i have a small wind mill which will just charge an inverter and give me sufficient energy to run a 1/2 to 1 HP water motor. The amount of water required for my plants is very less and am thinking seriously about a small wind mill.
    If you can throw some light on this it will be very helpful. Also the cost involved.

    Smile windmill water pumping

    Dear Brother

    What we understand is you are looking for a water pumping system through wind mill, but you did not mentioned quantity of water required to be lifted for your farm land, and any servey you gone through that proves your area is haveing potential wind to do so.

    Insted of charging battery and convering to AC suppy to pump water,

    why dont you try to run your pump with wind mill directly and store water in a tank at higher level, after release the water to your field when ever required. if you follow this system cost shall be very less compare with inverter and electrical motor.

    Hope you had clue to do it cheaper and less technical maintenance.

    Your comments are wellcome.

    With best wishes.

    Arrow Wind Mill

    Dear Sir,

    I can get you a Wind mill with a capacity for producing 1,20,000 units per day.

    You have to make a refundable security deposit of Rs. 50 Lacs with the mill owner. Maintenance is the job of the Mill owner.

    Further it will require about half acre of land where there is enough wind.

    If interested please let me know.

    Default Thanks to all

    Dear All,

    Thanks for your reply.

    Dear Mr. Shaikh

    Building a water tank at higher level is exactly what i am planning. My farm is in the hills and as you guessed there is plenty of wind for a wind mill. I need around 15000 litre water after every 2 days.
    My plan was to build a storage tank on the hill and using the electricity from the windmill and a small pump store the water in the tank. I think 2 days is a sufficient time to store 15000 litre water. I thought of the inverter because i cannot afford a big wind mill which can directly operate the pump. So i thought a small pump and an inverter just in case if the wind drops.

    I think my thoughts might work. Please help me out with the practicality of the same.

    All you guys seem to be an expert in the subject and i am just a new comer.
