While Solar or Wind generated electricity is viable, the so-called Bedini Motor is a hoax... Basically claiming to be nothing less than a type of perpetual motion machine. Steer clear of it mate, you will only be disappointed.
Also, if you have the "Grid" at your doorstep, you dont need to invest in any expensive storage system which after 10 or so years will most likely need to be replaced anyway. With feeding excess generated power into the Grid, you accumulate a credit which is summed with the power you draw from the Grid at the end of a billing period. Either you pay for the excess youve used or you end up with a credit. A very simple system.
People in remote areas who dont have the Grid right outside their front doors are in a very different situation of course, they need to include a storage system from which to draw their power requirements at night or on very overcast days. There are a number of different Wind Powered Generation designs in use around the country and some of these dont have much of a footprint, some can be put together at home from a kit, some from plans and of course you can just buy a prefabbed system and have it installed.
Theres a lot of info on the Net about Wind Generation Systems and a search will probably turn up a veritable mountain of information to sift through. We were thinking of opting in to the current subsidised scheme here in QLD but I dont think we will have the resources available in time before the grant scheme expires. All the best with this KK.... :)
