from the manual:
Your wind turbine is designed to operate in most climatic conditions. Should you expect or
experience winds of 150MPH upwards, please turn off the MPPT controller which will manually
apply the braking system to protect from any over spin. Once the Turbine has stopped, it is
possible to lay down the Tower to offer further protection.
How long will the bearings or other wearing parts last?
According to engineering calculations, the bearings should have a 10-year life span in 12 mph (6
m/s) average wind speed sites. Bearing life will vary from one application to another; however,
you should expect at least a five-year performance in adverse conditions and 10 years in normal
