How can I get a wind turbine? Are there dealers in Michigan who provide service or sales to homeowners?

John Lamb

Yes, it looks like there are quite a few wind turbine dealers in Michigan, so you shouldn’t have trouble finding one near you.

In general, when you’re looking for information about renewable energy, your state energy office can be a very helpful resource. In this case, the Michigan state energy office has exactly the information you’re looking for. Here’s a link to their pdf brochure of solar and wind power equipment suppliers in Michigan.

Another way to find local wind turbine retailers is to go to the manufacturers. For example, the Bergey site has a list of more than a dozen wind energy retailers in your state. (To get there, you’ll need to click on “dealer lists.”) You can find more wind turbine manufacturers on this list of wind turbine equipment providers from the American Wind Energy Association.
