looks like a very good deal. keep in mind you have to mount it somewhere that will get steady wind and little wind generators are noisy. the mount has to be very solid.

You are going to need a tower, charge regulator, batteries, wire and an inverter to get any real use out of it. Don't forget you need an area with lots of available wind also.

Here is a much better wind generator, that can be tailored to your needs and budget. http://www.hurricanewindpower.com/servlet/StoreFront

This is going to be my second in line wind gererators for sure. I will be going with the hurricane 4 series, as it operates in much lower wind areas. Some of these require much more wind then others Right now, I am running a 500 watt swea, and at about 1/3 wind, have already recorded results up to 28 amps. Can't wait for the spring winds that will move this baby to full capacity.
