Re: Wind generator

I gave my wind generator away to someone from the forum - it was noisy, needed at least 15 knots to provide sufficient power, and after one bout with a hurricane the blades and hub blew apart.

Solar is the best way to go, and even in marginal light conditions they still provide some power, though not much. When the wind's now howling, a wind generator, IMO, it just about useless.

Good luck,
