You need to first determine if you are in an area capable of sustained winds to generate electricity. Sure you can generate energy using wind almost anywhere the wind blows, but some areas just plain stink for wind power.
The sun shines almost everywhere. Some parts of the country have less hours of sun than others but for the most part you can use solar almost anywhere. Wind is not quite the same. Even if you think you always have a "steady breeze" at home that does not warrant putting up a turbine.
