Thanks I have been searching the net but seem to be getting a lot of buy this milti thousand dollar system from us sites that are not giving me much
So building a bank of batteries increases power outage or how long it lasts?
Ya I'm pretty much an idiot when it comes to this stuff but I want to learn.
The main purpose of the companies advertising is to make money. They will throw a lot of numbers at you but ignore that. Find a complete system that
incorporates a generator, your wind turbine, battery bank and inverter. Study the parts. Once you understand the basic idea then start looking for
For instance, old golf cart batteries work great for a battery bank and some people have access to those pretty cheap. Some car alternators work well
as the basis for a turbine. Regular gas generators can supplement a system for peak use times and charge a battery bank if the power is rectified.
Type in basic electricity on google. You will find thousands of free classes and tutorials about electricity.
Learn about AC, DC, battery power and household power. Get some basic knowledge. It's not instant and easy. It takes time.
Then learn about power generation, battery banks and charging, inverting and rectification.
These are all easy to do if you take the time to study from the ground up.
Instant and easy is paying someone else several thousand dollars extra for a system you can learn to build yourself.
Cheap and functional takes time.
