    It is a back up system for when its stormy and no solar rays are cumming in it stores electricity in battery's.

    Nice! Pic's too small to see the detail on the blade design. What generator/alternator are you using?

    Impressive work captainleeward. That's one big 7-blade unit. What's the output of your turbines?

    Here in San Diego California our weather systems are changing now we are experiencing more windy storms than before so wind is now a good back up system.

    The generator is a washing machine motor from Australia. I purchased it on E-Bay and had to rewire it for 12v dc operation. The blades are store bought but i modified them for lighter winds.
