The siting of any wind turbine is important as regards turbulence or shelter from trees, buildings,etc, but the figures you are getting are ridiculously low. If the wedges that control the blade angle are fitted the wrong way, a higher speed is reached and the output reaches dangerously high levels. I believe that the blade angle wedges are manufactured to fit only the right way now.

While Proven do prefer you to go through your Installer first, they do take an interest in how their machines are performing. Gavin Kerr's contact details come from the Business Card he gave us. He was in Orkney on a sales promotion and came to check on how our turbine is performing.

Proven turbines can take a bit of fiddling with to run right but when set up achieve fairly good outputs, certainly way, way more than yours is achieving.
