**What it does:** domestic wind turbines

**Why it works:** "A stand-alone house in the country will use roughly 8,000 units, and that's our target market: a stand-alone dwelling in a rural location with good wind available to it. We will only install where we can ensure a return." *- Richard Kingston, founder*
