This is a new 4 kw vertical axis wind turbine from Urban Green Energy. It has a low start up speed with a fairly large swept area. This one is on the ground which demonstrates the use of this as a possibility for a mobile generator.
Happy 2017! In this video, I moved the 24v solar generator into my living room and the two folding solar panels to the backyard (400w total). I built a lean-to rack out of spare Unistrut (Superstrut) channels. I also sunk a 4′ long grounding rod into the dirt near the patio. Everything works! The batteries are two 12v Trojan 31 AGM “Overdrive” deep cycle batteries. They are great!

After one full year of having a solar panel system on the roof of my home, I share some insights into how it’s been working. This is a grid-tied system, purchased through Vivint Solar, to generate up to 100% of the electricity we use each year. Now that I can run the numbers for a full year of use, I’ll talk about it.
In the near future I’ll explain how a new radon mitigation system in our home motivated me to contact Vivint Solar again to expand our system and generate even more electricity.
