What you need to know about wind turbines and renewable energyWhat you need to know about wind turbines and renewable energy

There are many fantastic reasons for investing in wind turbines and renewable energy. In this blog,we’ll talk about installation,maintenance,what you need to consider before investing in wind turbines.

What do wind turbines do?

Before we go any further,let’s talk about how wind turbines work and how they can benefit you. Wind turbines are designed to use the wind to generate electricity. Their large blades are used to catch the wind. During gusty weather,these blades turn around to drive a turbine to make electricity. The stronger the wind becomes; the more electricity is generated.

What kinds of wind turbines are available?

There are currently two types of wind turbines available for domestic customers â pole-mounted and building-mounted. Pole-mounted wind turbines are free-standing and can generate up to 6kW. Building-mounted wind turbines can be installed on the roof of your home. You are more likely to get better results if your roof is exposed to high winds. These turbines can normally generate up to 2kW. Not all wind turbines are suitable for every home,but trusted professionals can help you find the right solutions for your circumstances.

The benefits of wind turbines

There are several great reasons for investing in a wind turbine. As wind is free,your fuel bills will be noticeably reduced once the installation is complete. As wind electricity is green and renewable,you’ll be able to reduce your carbon footprint by using a wind turbine. This is because you’ll be releasing much less carbon dioxide and other pollutants. You can even store excess electricity inside batteries and use it on wind-free days if you’re not connected to the national grid.

What can I expect to pay for a wind turbine?

How much your turbine will cost you will depend on several factors. These include the way your turbine is mounted and how big it is. Costs for building-mounted turbines are generally lower,but your solution may not be as effective. You will need to have your system checked and maintained every few years. Costs tend are variable but at Cooper & Turner we can help.

How long will my wind turbine last and what are the running costs?

If you take good care of your turbine,it can last for over two decades. The inverter will likely need to be replaced at some point,costing between £1,000 to £2,000. If you are not connected to the National Grid,you will also need to replace the battery at least every ten years. Costs can vary depending on the system itself. You will also need to maintain your back-up generator if you have one.

Top 3 Accident Law Firms in Dallas (Out of Hundreds)Top 3 Accident Law Firms in Dallas (Out of Hundreds)

A glance at dallasopendata.com,a site that agregates police call data for the Dallas area shows several dozen calls per day from traffic accidents in the region. The majority are non-injury accidents but each day,several accidents occur involving injury,some serious and some resulting in death.

As many accidents as are reported,a look at the number of personal injury law firms in the Dallas area seems to be even higher. A Google search for accident lawyers in Dallas yields 120 firms and those are less than half the actual number of firms that routinely advertise for personal injury representation. Thus it can be extremely daunting to know where to even begin when deciding on an accident attorney.

We spent several days weeding through dozens of injury firm listings and narrowed our favorites down to just 3.

1. Ward Maedgen Accident Attorneys

Why: As the name implies,they take more car accidents than just general liability cases.Although they have fewer reviews,than the others,in speaking with this firm, we got the sense that this is due to keeping their case volume intentionally low. From what we gathered,this attorney works on fewer cases but which involve serious injuries. We spoke with the principal attorney (Mr. Maedgen) and he was very kind. He laid out some of the options we might have with the hypothetical case we presented but ended with a recommendation for a another attorney who was currently taking less serious cases.

2. Zinda Law Group

Why: For those looking for a larger firm with a state-wide presence,Zinda might be worth looking at. Zinda has 22 attorneys on its team which is the largest team of injury attorneys that we looked at. In some cases,the argument could be made that a larger legal team might have some advantages such as supporting each other on difficult cases. But for the majority of accident case victims,a single attorney works on the case from during the entire lifespan of the case with help from legal staff. That said,firms with larger teams tend to also have more and stronger resources for doing research to develop cases.

Here’s a top review we found from a prior client:

“I HIGHLY recommend Zinda Law Group and Matthew Swanger!After my kids and I were in a car accident,I was spending hours a day on the phone with insurance- fighting to get help with my claim. I finally called Zinda,and I only wish I had done it sooner. Once I met with Matthew,He took over everything. From that point on,all I had to worry about was getting medical treatment. He and his assistant Cooper were so quick and on top of things. I never had to wait for a response from them when I needed help or had questions. They are professional,helpful,and kind. I can’t even put into words the stress they took off of my family and me during a very challenging time. I will forever recommend them!”

3. The Barber Law firm

Why: Friendly staff,friendly attorneys. The attorney we spoke with (Mr. Strong) brought a more youthful enthusiasm to the conversation than any others we had chatted with. He had a very ‘can do’ demeanor. As it turns out,Mr. Strong is currently on the Super Lawyers “Rising Star” list of notable injury attorneys and The National Trial Lawyers “Top 40 Under 40” list. The Barber Law Firm also has convenient locations throughout Dallas and Fort Worth.

Here’s a stellar review we found from a prior client:

“I used the Barber Law Firm to help fight against multiple insurance companies,and they were incredible. A driver cut across three lanes of traffic which caused three cars to be totaled. The driver who caused the wreck made wild accusations like I was speeding,and that I fled the scene. The insurance companies were more than willing to deny liability,and try to put me at fault,despite the absurdity of his claims. The Barber Law Firm’s staff were kind and professional. They represented me for my injuries,and even the property damage. Andrew,Michele,and Kimberly really helped through the entire process,and really knew what they were doing. If I ever am in a car wreck again I will definitely be giving them a call. I was able to get medical treatment and a new vehicle. I am very grateful for all of their hard work and help. So many people are taken advantage of by insurance companies,don’t risk it call the Barber Law Firm.”
