The WS-1000 is Installed

The Mark Group has finally installed our wind turbine. Two men (initially only one) used a cherry picker hoist to bolt a large metal frame to the side of the house, fix the turbine in place, lay a cable down the side of the house, and install the invertor unit.

It is already spinning merrily, and has produced its first 0.1kWh of electricity (all of 1p or so!). In a medium breeze you can hear it 'swishing' quite cleary, and the electricity generated is inconsiderable. We usually get far more wind than this, so it remains to be seen how much it is capable of and how noisy it will get.


It's quiet in here...Add your comment
