What is the best home wind turbine?
« on: January 18, 2020, 01:07:45 PM »
Hello,

Assuming the Midnite w/ Clipper is the best for controls. What wind turbine is the best?

A few years ago a vertical turbine was said to be the best design. I’m looking for build quality with cutting edge design.

Thanks!

Buying one off the shelf - http://www.jacobswind.net/products
Jacobs older products (from the 1920's) have been reliable.

If you want to DIY, I've liked the Axial Flux kit/plans  http://scoraigwind.co.uk/
