(NaturalNews) Londoners are increasingly choosing wind power over power lines, enabling them to not only power their own homes, but actually supply green energy to others.

Donnachadh McCarthy also has solar panels installed in his home, in addition to a turbine. "I'm in surplus. I am now providing money to the grid," he says pointing to a blinking red light on the wall of his home that marks the progress of his domestic power station.

McCarthy has exported 20 percent more electricity than he's imported this year -- an impressive fact in a world where most electricity is created from huge power stations, and where consumers and businesses are 100 percent reliant on consumption of energy, but don't produce any of their own.

David Cameron, leader of the opposition Conservative Party, recently said that he would add a turbine and solar panels to his west London home this year, where green living standards are taking hold. The addition will give his green efforts and a way of life he supports mass media exposure in Britain for what is being termed as "microgeneration." and

Peter Osborn with Futurenergy sells domestic wind turbines for $1,200 on his website, and began shipping them out four months ago. Osborn says that Futurenergy now sells about 100 wind turbines a week to customers all over the world.

"Renewables are not the answer. This is about a range of things that come together. Mainly it's about reducing your need for energy."
