Not sure where this topic should go.
You solar guys should see the massive solar array we have at one of our test sites.
The fixed solar on the shed is 10K and the auto solar trackers are 40K.

Enjoy..

    How did you guys arrange for a fire truck to put up your turbine?

    Good question.
    A local fireman purchased the retired engine. He uses it for tree and tower work.
    It has all the bells an whistles and it all works.
    100' ladder.
    We used FT for a complete inspection only. The turbine was previously installed in December 09.

    Nice little Airstream too. LOL

    Was this a prototype turbine? Tear down inspection every 6 months?

    Is this the same North Wind company that was making small wind in the 1980's?

    We are a new company.
    We are trying to receive education by mother nature at this point. She hasen't gotten us yet, but we hope it will be soon.
