wind power for your hut

4 posts in this topic

most of the time im on lake of the woods and its almost allways windy, the turbines I was looking at supplied 400 watts. depending on the wind speed, you could charge all your stuff and have power to spare, kinda pricey but cool.

actually cheaper than a quality generator. and way greener, add a couple of solar panels for wind down time, could be on to something here.

I'm getting my drop down setup with a turbine. I have a 100w turbine and a charge controller. The stickler with wind turbines is that they are constantly producing power when the wind is blowing. The charge controller keeps the flow regulated for the battery, when the battery is charged the flow is then diverted to a load. This is the tricky part, you need something capable of handling the full amperage and watts that the turbine is capable of producing. Most home installs divert the load to a 12v water heating element added to the water heater. I found a 350w infrared 12v heater that I will use. What ever you decided it has to always be available to use up excess power. My project is costing a lot more than expected. I now have a two battery system with a battery selector, battery isolator, I need fuses, a fuse bank, a negative bank, 8 gauge wire, circuit breakers for each battery, switches, ect... Marine 12v hardware isn't cheap $$$

    •   Well, like I said, I think it was fake news but it was still pretty darn good! I like a really tomatoey chili and this one was that.
    •   I like chili without beans but my wife likes them and this recipe called for beans so I went with it.   That's pretty close to what I just made but it looks darn good. I'll probably try this one next time!
    •   This has zero to do with the article I posted. I don't think you get it.   Another one that doesn't get it.
    •     So you're saying that statement isn't true?      
    •   Oh, I see now.   The Feds bowing out completely,  zero control, regulation and placing it in the hands of the citizens, effectively ending the war, will flip the script and it will correct itself.    Crime down, prisons emptied, addiction to new lows, family saved.   Stfu.   You have no idea or plans to swap in after decriminalizing. None. Nothing.        
    •     Do you have any evidence to back this statement up?   Because if you listen to Trump's rhetoric, the focus is clearly on illegal drugs coming across the border.  With a traditional militaristic approach.
    •     The double standard pertains more to whether you have the financial resources to go into treatment and avoid going to prison than to legal versus illegal.  If Rush didn't have the financial resources to hire a good lawyer, he would have gone to prison rather than to a treatment center - simple as that.  The federal government (via the taxpayers) funds prisons - they do not fund treatment centers.   Both are controlled substances, but the reality is the government doesn't do a very good job of controlling either one.  They are still dragging their feet on legalizing or even re-classifying marijuana, even though it is common knowledge their classification is a complete farce.   The legal opiate version is just as addicting, or possibly more addicting than the illegal version, and accounts for the largest percentage of drug overdose deaths today.   If there is a crackdown on prescription opioids, the data shows there will be an increase in illegal heroin use.  Florida is a prime example.   We know there are ways of treating addiction that do not involve prison sentences.     The War on Drugs going at it from the traditional/conventional federal perspective is a complete failure.   Those are the facts, but obviously none of that makes any difference to you, and you will continue to defend the status quo with no rational reason to do so.     Bobby nailed it when he said "syntax error on line 1"....
