  1. I live in an area with very low winds for the year except winter mths. I
    also live in Canada and don't like to shovel.

    What I want to do is simply build a wind gene and hook it to those heat
    wires ppl but on their roof to prevent ice dams on the roof.

    Was wondering if I install the heat wires under the driveway by a few inches
    and hook it up to the gene. What till I need for it to all connect
    together? and will it work?
    Thanks in advance.

    Last heated drive way I did was a loading dock for a hospital, 60 amps at
    480v is what was needed for the double truck wide space.

    Most wind machines I see are less than a 1000 watts.
