Testing a wind generator before installation

Greetings All: A friend and I each bought a 5kw wind generator package which included the generator head, blades, 25' pole, dump, inverter, and other components to be used for a grid tie set-up. We only found out that the system was designed for gird tie after the guy moved his operation to TX and now we're somewhat up the creek since neither of us are on the grid. My question is, how does one test the generator to be sure it puts out power? Logically, I'm thinking I just hook up a meter to the 3 wires, which I really don't know how to do, spin the shaft, and see what the meter says. Am I on the right track here? The main reason I want to check it out on the ground is that the pole weighs about 1000 lbs and needs a large concrete base to hold the heavy set up. Anyone have any pointers or advice on how to test the generator head?
