Wind Generators for Home, Cabin,
Worksites or other Remote Locations
Wind generators have changed a lot since the “old” days.
Wind generators convert the mechanical energy of their spinning blades into an electric current; they do not actually store power. Wind turbine generators are primarily used to recharge all types of 12/24 Volt batteries, including lead-acid automotive batteries, deep-cycle (traction type) batteries, gel-cell batteries, and heavy-duty (stationary type) batteries. When using wind generators to run appliances on a regular basis, the use of deep-cycle marine batteries is recommended. This type of battery is designed to withstand the frequent charge and discharge cycles associated with wind power use. Attempting to run the wind generator on an open circuit without a battery may cause damage to the generator or connected equipment.
