I'm not an electrician so I'm hoping someone here can simply tell me the correct Ametek motor and deep cycle batteries to get from Ebay. They have different ratings and all I want to do (at least in this project) is to use the wind turbine to power one 70 Watt high pressure sodium vapor dusk-to-dawn outdoor light.
In reality....you purchased a scam.
While on the surface, it looks great....there are a lot of 'little' details left out that in the long run will leave you in the dark.
Problem #1....the amount of air close to the ground is drastically lower than the wind up higher....one of the reasons you see comercial windmills so high in the air.
Problem #2.....any 'performance' claims are highly exagerated and very dependent on ideal conditions....
Problem #3.....any time a video uses 'patriotism' as a way to sell...is doing nothing more than scaming you.
If this was a truely viable idea....you would be seeing a lot more in the mainscream media.
Here is one link....
In case that is not enough....here is another link..
