Re: Wind generator help request

I had an Airbreeze generator installed on our PSC31 in 2010. Have had good service from it. It came with a remote toggle on-off switch. When not using the gen I set the switch to off position and that puts a load on the device and then it spins only slowly if at all. I have tied it off when a big breeze was expected.

The voltage regulator is built into the Air Breeze and has performed as designed. Not sure how old the generator your vessel has installed, but I suspect that the technology as improved over the years. Perhaps the cost/benefit might indicate a new wind gen?

Sorry I don't have any other info for you respecting the missing controller.
