Our old 12v battery and inverter system found a new home at the Martins, and we got a AIR-X wind turbine out of the deal. It will arrive near the end of the week, and we hope to have pictures and installation info for you on the weekend. We may also have a Whisper 500 watt turbine going up as well. Will keep you posted.
These wind turbines will help charge the 840 ah 24v battery bank that runs this house. We also hope to get our DIY 1000 watt unit rewound for 24v and raised sometime this spring. On sunny days, the 1700 watt solar array is bringing in between 4 and 6 kWh’s daily.
I’m looking forward to seeing the production numbers on the wind turbines. Initially we may only get them 30′ or so up in the air, but plan on 100′ in spring when the ground thaws.
