Tower Power

30 Mar

Purchased a future project..a 50 ft windmill tower. The price was too good to pass up and even if we don’t use it right away we can stash it for later. The original owner had a 4000 watt wind turbine on the tower…he is also selling a 5000 watt Xantrex inverter…but at this point we cannot justify buying it…too much for us both in regards to output and cost.

I am having trouble getting 2 bolts off…but hopefully today or tomorrow we will finish taking it all apart and get to home…and in the future get a smaller wind turbine to augment our system’
