I would suggest a good LONG LONG look at other peoples experience with small wind power,
I have not used it but from what I read, 99% of its owners wish they had spent the money on panels instead,
The other 1% have cranes / platform lifts, lots of spare time, no neighbors, A deaf + blind wife, A company that installs them and a very romantic way to read output figures,

Have a good one
Tim

ps have a look over on http://www.wind-sun.com theres plenty of satisfied customers :grin:
My comments are based on my experience and research, They are not endorsed or checked by Outback.I am an independent British electrician living in Spain, So please take this into account when reading /acting on my post`s.

Tim's generally correct.

Do you have a valid site wind survey? Small wind requires a LOT of wind. I'm planning to put a (borrowed) turbine up for a bit of turbine researching, but I'm not expecting it to produce enough power to keep it. Which is why I put "(borrowed)" in there. Perhaps if you have constant 10m/s plus winds, but if you don't, forget it.

Thanks , i am fully aware of the pit falls associated with wind turbines. i have some clients who have a positive experience because of the wind analysis that we do at each proposed site prior to actually installing one. My original question however was about a specific brand of machine. i always enjoy reading all posts but i hope the next one helps me to answer the question that i originally posted
