Old solar and wind footage

Solar & Wind EBooks



I made this video about 8 to 9 years ago.
Just showing my shed that had no grid power at the time.
So I installed a small wind generator and a Solar Panel on a homemade sun tracker.

What was not shown at the time was a home-made circuit for the wind generator dump load which went to a bank of lights.
Which was not really needed as the wind generator was very inefficient,and we were not in a high wind area at the time.

Thought you might find it interesting.
The Bush Block Homestead power system will be a bit more advanced than this setup 🙂

    Unfortunately not much has changed. People still use Lead Acid and those useless 5,6,7 blades wind turbine.
    Not sure you are aware of my Solar BMS (Battery Management System) that I designed and the new version is just now on Kickstarter. I moved fully offgrid two years ago and use LiFePO4 batteries for solar energy storage. I also just uploaded a video on my small 300W wind turbine but it is in a windy place and I have seen even more than 300W up to 500W in some strong wind gust. I will suggest you only use solar it dose not seems to be enough wind there.
    I guess you will be moving soon OffGrid (I was following your progress).
    You may find my youtube videos interesting if you have time.

  2. A  good set up in your shed. I like the sun directional gismo and your contol panel is first class even on todays standards

    I have a 1kw 24v wind generator 12m high and yes the best i seen on my gt meter was 580watts but i was happy to have a wind generator as she down and out from a storm we got i'm yet to fix it but i hold off till i get to my block of land as the brisbane city council was no to me for having one then they said i cant have the solar tracker and said they be around to test it all to see if safe but they have not come yet .
    but i do have a solar tracker setup to with 3x 200w panels track the sun all day to charge my 5x 200ah battery bank to run my 8000w LF inverter to run my tools and front loader washer all i use it on as my home is run on 12vdc to save on power no big power use in my home only the power tools.
    have to see if i get you on teamspeak in my container home & solar room for a chat one day be good
