Wind Power

Please visit the Solar Panel page for a short discussion on our desire to install a solar panel/battery storage system and possibly a small wind turbine. We understand that when planning the solar we need to incorporate (the planning for) wind generation at the same time.

We are currently in the research phase of this project and welcome your comments, feedback and ideas both here and on the solar panel page. So jump in folks and let us know what's on your mind.

  1. I would be very interested in any experiences or suggestions myself. I am too far South to get enough sun for solar 6 to 8 months out of the year, but 2 blocks from the ocean makes a wind turbine very appealing to consider.

  2. I’m about the same Latitude as New Zealand on the coast of Chile slightly above the town of Valdivia. That name always conjures up a Heinlen-esk name like “the Valdivian galaxy” along with my on-going feeling to be a stranger in a strange land. I’m the only “gringo” in this area that is traditional Mapuche indigenous tribal land and I am teaching their local carpenters the old ways of post and beam timber frame construction. When you want to learn – teach :>), and I’m as happy as if I had good sense.

    It’s not really so much the angle of sunlight, it’s the weather pattern of cloud cover here as it is a region of Pacific temperate rain forest, the Southern flip of what’s similar to the coast outside of Seattle, Wa., even tho’ the Latitude is about the same as Mendocino, Ca., @ 42 degrees (-).
