This used to be quite common back in the 'old days' but fell out of favor when cheap electricity came along. Are the older style windmills(aeromotor is one I think) a good idea for a source of power for a well pump? We are building on a hill in NC and IF the wind is sufficient(not sure HOW to find out if this is the case...any thoughts??) to power a windmill I would LOVE to have one. Also IF there is sufficient wind,could a generator be hooked up to provide power to our place? Thanks.
