hi Kenny,
An interesting video you posted.Hope you don't mind a couple of suggestions/question.
It would be useful to create a signature lines here that lists your setup.
You seem to have pvs pointing in different directions and did I see one attached vertically on the siding?
The hinge and wood bracket system seems good but its not securing the PVs. If a good wind lifted a pv up on its hinge the support T bracket would just drop and the PV would drop too. Enough wind and it might flap around and smash.
What are the pair of wind turbines? They look fairly low and below the tree line, do you get much power from them? and are they connected to a controller? Whats connected to those two outbacks and the 45amp ? morningstar?
That 5.9Amps that pleases you from 240Watts at 24V PVs should be significantly better with a KID mppt controller
You get about 165watts from  them now, I would expect over 200watts maybe 220-235 with mppt meaning about 8 to 8.5amps at 27.4v

The Solar Panels On The Side That Are Vertical / Flat Get The Morning Sun In Winter The Other 2 120 Watt Hinged Solar Panels Have A Hitch Pin To Keep Them From Moving  The 60 Amp Morningstar Is My Diversion Controller For My Battery Bank For My Wind Turbines  They Are 2  1000 Watt  @ 24 Volt Hye Energy Wind Turbines At 20 Feet Yes They Put Out Great Power For There Height I can Go To High In A residential Neighbor Hood Every I Have Is In Check LOL I Have Grid And Battery Back Up Off Grid power I Think The KID Will Do Great
