small video shot with my cell phone. This is my wind generator power meters. Just showing that they do produce power. I get this two or three times a week in Michigan. Wind is not a full time power source in my opinion, but it is a great addition to a solar setup.

Nice simple set up.  I checked out the rest of your vids, very nice.

Hello Thank you James... I really need to update my older circuit video. I should be completely in the house in the Sping. I will make a new video with the completed look of the new breaker box and circuit switches.

OK Big Moe

Thanks for making this.

Are the Solar charge controllers wired in with the wind controllers? I see the wind charge controller are they from Missouri wind and solar?

I hate to asked but couls I get a close up Pic of that? Where did you get the digital read outs for both of them.

What Gauge wire are you running to the controller??

Wow hows that fo a stack of rookie questions before Sunday Coffee

Thanks and the setup looks great

Hello Dave,

The solar chargers are connected to the battery bank individually and the wind controller is also connected to the same battery bank. The wind generator controller is from MW&S and it works very well. I have both wind generators connected to the same controller. It will handle up to 440 amps or 10,000 watts, so no issue with a few wind generators connected. Here is the link to it. 

I will have to look tonight to see what the wire guage is.. I think it is 6 awg I will have to look tonight. I bought the digital guages at missouri wind and solar, I see from that link above that the controller now has a gauge built in, so that is one item you don't have to buy if you bought this controller.

 

I'm very happy with my controller, it looks like it was built in Frankenstein's lab, but it works great.

 

No issue with the questions, it just takes a bit to answer, i'm not always in state and near a PC.

 

I can get closer pictures this week, just let me know what you want to see.  If you have specific questions shoot me an email, I get those no matter where I am.

Moe

thanks for the information I do want to leave my PMW Controllers alone. I understand your Solar Controllers are separate from the wind controller that is good news.

I am checking out the MW&S Charge Controller. It is Butt ugly however you say its great that is good enough for me.

HF has 6 Gauge Jumper Cables on sale. I will start picking them up to make the runs to the Battery Bank

I will keep you posted

Thanks again

Dave

Could I see a pic of how the Charge controllers Solar and Wind are they side by side?
