  1. Just wanted to say that I bought one and the powder coating helped a lot. I live right next to the ocean and I bought a generator that wasn’t coated and it rusted within a month. I was skeptical about how well the powder coating would hold up against the air here but it seems to be doing well. 2 months and not a single rust spot.

  2. Have been shopping for a generator for a project and saw your site but also saw some negative reviews until I did some further digging and saw that this was due to a former manufacturer Presto Wind we will be ordering soon and just want to know if all of the issues are ironed out and what was the garantee you spoke of in your recent videos

  4. Wish I had seen this PMA before I had seen some of the similar ones on the market. I am disappointed in some of the products i have bought recently and will be ordering from you soon.

  5. Also saw your videos on the products and was hiping you would be putting one up and showing monitoring equipment on one of your review videos with a blade set recomendation.

  6. We recently purchased this PMA and we thouroghly impressed with the output in low wind as well as the versatility with series / parralel wiring….we have made a switch that allows to change the wiring effortlessly and are working on making this an automatic function

  7. I think it’s cool how Hurricane Wind Power reviews some of their own products. Can you link me to one of your videos so I can this in action?

  8. Hey Hurricanewindpower,
    I just stumbled across this and |I agree the industry have to be put in check with outlandish claims i think its a good post plus it is very referenced for the source?I have no objection to proliferation of information but if there are copy rite issues this must be pulled|Terry says: |December 23, 2012 at 4:38 am||Generous federal and territorial rebates and credits have aided put wind stamina on a growing list of choices which use the forces of nature to trim a electricity bill. But the early tests of 1 wind turbine recommend which you would conserve far less than the producer claims?and wait years for a investment to pay for itself. Wind turbines are supposed to save by powering the house and sending or selling any unused power they create to a utility thus which it can credit we that amount. At regarding $11,000 installed, the Honeywell WT6500 Wind Turbine you?re testing at the Yonkers, N.Y., headquarters costs less than countless wind systems, even before rebates. It?s warranted for five years plus is ordered by True Value stores, from dealers plus online, and at certain Ace shops. And it?s amidst the limited which can mount on a roof. Low sound is an added talking point for this 6-foot-diameter turbine, that was about as loud as a library whisper inside the tests. Its bicycle-wheel shape is furthermore advertised to be simpler for birds to see than three-blade turbines. WindTronics, that makes the program, states it might deliver 18 to 23 percent of a typical home?s yearly electricity demands, depending on wind speed. That must mean the system pays for itself in about six years, provided the vitality it may create in our area, the 30 percent federal taxes credit for tiny turbines, and the thousands inside state rebates. However thus far, you?ve watched just a fraction of the total stamina which WindTronics states we must for the area, even after several visits from a company-authorized installer. At that rate, the Honeywell wouldn?t pay its technique over its expected lifetime of 20 years. We?ll be updating the info during the upcoming year and can report on further developments because you continue testing. Still, the early results highlight certain key steps to take before opting for any wind turbine: Know the force we?ll absolutely get Based strictly on wattage, the Honeywell produced regarding what?s reported for the low wind speeds you were capable to create inside the tests. But acquiring out how much power you?ll conserve at a house will be challenging. For instance, WindTronics? promotional material claims 2,000 kilowatt-hours per year at class 3 winds, that the federal government defines considering 11.5 to 12.5 mph. Yet its online calculator ( showed an output of merely 1,155 kWh per year at the 12-mph average it expected for our region. That amounts to about 10 % of the 11,000 kWh per year the U.S. Energy Information Administration cites for a typical house?not the 18 % WindTronics asserts. The company?s url moreover involves an estimate of 1,500 kWh per year on average, depending on wind speed, height, plus url place. However even that comes to merely 14 % of the government?s annual energy-use estimate. Check wind maps carefully Manufacturer sites may give you average wind speeds by ZIP code. Those averages is misleading, nonetheless. WindTronics? calculator delivers a ?good? rating to the 12-mph speeds it states the destination could average. However which rating is at 164 feet, not the 33 feet or more the Honeywell requirements for roofs. A government map of New York lists average wind speeds for the region under 10 mph, not 12 mph. Indeed, you?ve had to blow air into the Honeywell with 2 industrial fans to come close to which speed. Get a website analysis Hills, trees, plus other obstructions may lower wind speeds on a property. A website analysis by the installer must account for that. WindTronics told us its installations require 1 plus it is very adding an online analysis tool. Our factory-authorized installer didn?t include a url analysis. And the tool comes months following the Honeywell hit the marketplace inside late 2010. WindTronics has considering recommended that the site is inappropriate. Have the rooftop checked Wind forces plus the over 440 pounds for the turbine plus help structure may surpass a rooftop?s ability. With any rooftop system, get a structural analysis from an engineer before purchasing. And though roof-mounted turbines might appear less obtrusive than pole systems, you can nevertheless need approval from your zoning board.
