Re: Missouri Wind and Solar Turbine, anyone try them?
From what I've seen, the WindyNation wind turbines are one of the few that are rated honestly. If I was looking to buy a smaller turbine, I'd consider one of them (or one of the smaller WindMax HY turbines). My HY-2000 has been great and was conservatively rated. It makes more power than they stated. Now, that is really impressive - especially considering it came from China! Based on my experience, the HY Energy company appears to be one of the better affordable wind turbine companies out there - regardless of country of origin.
