NRES offers very competitive equipment options to enable energy production from our wind resource. We are also dabbling in the smaller, home brew versions but after visiting some manufacturers facilities, seeing their quality and excellent pricing, the homebrew went back on the shelf.
These turbines are extremely durable, warranted by the manufacturer (NRES does warranty issues) and are custom assembled to your specification. This is an excellent opportunity to break out of the $7/watt or more cost of new wind and get into something closer to $3/watt.
We work with US made solar panels, either Sharp solar or sanyo solar. They have worked tremendously for us these past few years where over 100kW in solar has been installed. Roof mount systems are generally $4/watt; pole and ground mounts are around $6/watt installed cost. Contact us if you have any questions regarding US made solar, inverters, charge controller products. Chinese made systems are not utilized here.
