Missouri wind and solar has a bunch of happy customers including me. Yes I've seen the negative videos out there but they are all from the same couple people with diferent user names including some competitors. I had a Falcon mach3 mounted on my roof that I loved. They let me change out the pma to their new dual which still worked with the falcon blades and the output was doubling. Yeah I think 2800 watts was achieved in a little higher winds but it'll do it. I can't say enough how much I love their products and performance. They're well built too and made in the USA. I checked into their reviews on ebay before I purchased which was great. I really enjoy Jeff's how to videos and he was really the first one.
I have it connected in parallel but series connection allows you to double the voltage output when the winds are low or for stepping to higher voltages. The only thing I didn't like is they didn't label which output wire was for higher voltage but was able to figure that out by letting it spin and checking which one made more voltage.

That is so bad I just don't know what to say.
The wiring is a disaster waiting to happen. A 24 Volt system shouldn't be allowed to drop below 24 Volts. That GT system is in no way safe or legal. The narrative ...
It's people like that that cause fires.
The only part that doesn't surprise me is the current (top meter) bouncing all over the place (including negative numbers) with the variable winds. That's one of the time-honoured problems of wind power: inconsistent velocity makes for poor power production. Seems the peak is around 345 Watts. Amps alone is not the issue: Amps * Volts = Watts (like I have to reiterate that?) Of course some of the power is being lost in undersized wires and an excess of semiconductors.
I can do better than that with solar panels any day.
Anyone is free to disagree with me, but don't try starting any arguments. Just now I have a very low tolerance for "stupid". :roll:

in retrospect i guess i should not be surprised as to them targeting you as i just glanced at the number of views on the thread at over 10,200. i can see there is some validity to your concerns with that company if that's their proof of operations. not very professional either as i wouldn't even want to insult mickey mouse in this case. yikes.

I wonder if the meters are backwards? Wouldn't it make more sense if the voltage was 23 and the current was 1.? That's the history
