In a good wind area, a windmill generator can give more power for its cost than
Both together can give steadier input since a windmill charges your batteries in storms when there is no sun, and at night as well. But
beware of erecting a windmill where the wind is not strong and steady. Your
area's wind speed,
as well as your immediate terrain, will determine how well the windmill performs.
If in doubt, we suggest starting with solar modules, and checking the wind for a year. This will show whether to add either a windmill or more
Windmills must mount at least 30 feet above trees and obstructions for 300 feet
around. They need non-turbulent air, where a weather vane holds
Charge controls for windmills are different than for solar. All the windmills listed
here come with their own charge controls so they can be connected directly to your
battery, to work alongside solar charging and generator charging.
Contact us for full factory literature and advice on selecting a
windmill. Windmill delivery may be subject to long
consider our wind DVD or Wind Energy Basics book.
Both cover the basics of using the wind to produce
electricity, evaluating your site, and installation
options. More details on these and other publications
and video can be found in our education section.

TO MEASURE YOUR WIND
A wind recorder mounted as high as a windmill, lets you calculate the
amount of power each windmill model would produce that location.
The Wind Data Logger is designed to
provide an affordable and easy-to-use solution for wind
site evaluation and wind generator performance. It
easily supports both simple and complex monitoring
applications. The Wind Data Logger records wind speed,
gust, and direction, as well as the time and
date, temperature (if optional temperature sensor is
added), battery voltage, and other important wind
parameters. Capable of recording wind speed from up to
three anemometers, it is ideal for more complex studies
involving multiple wind speed instruments and other
Recording directly to a Secure Digital (SD™) card
provides convenient data downloads
and stores many months of data at 30 second intervals
and years of data at longer logging intervals, resulting
in fewer trips to retrieve data from the Wind Data
Logger. For your convenience, a new file is created and
saved to the card each day.
