Re: Cost of Proven 6KW installation?
by Simon Ridout at 2008-05-30 18:12:45 (Forum::Public::Wind)
I wish that my grant was that generous! Mine was commissioned exactly a year ago today and has generated7126kWH. If you look through past entries on this site, you will see that I had some significant teething problems, not really starting generating until early Oct. Therefore, I am hoping for 8.5-9 MWH in a full 12 months.

Have you / your installer yet talked to your distribution company to check that there will be no problems with the grid connection? If not, do it ASAP as any modifications will be time consuming. Also, when the turbine is installed, ask repeatedly and loudly, 'have you installed the blade wedges correctly?'

My first problem was a burnt out core (essentially the altenator windings) due to a manufacturing fault. When this was replaced, the installer had to remove and replace the blades. He put the wedges on back to front and burnt out one control box and three inverters before the problem was recognised. I do not think that he made any money from the instalation! The turbine has been flawless since the wedges were turned round!

Good luck
