Whisper battery-charging system with wind-solar hybrid

Small wind and solar panels (photovoltaic) are often seen as complimentary technology as both are used together as a hybrid system to offset the variability of sun and wind resources.

Is a wind turbine right for me?

If you have a wind resource greater than 8mph (4 m/s) and your area is free from obstacles then a wind generator will likely be a good match. It is that easy! An important reason to have a wind turbine is because of the seasonal variations of your solar and wind resources. A hybrid system that uses both solar photovoltaic panels and a wind turbine will make the perfect compliment that provides minimal interruptions in power. Depending on your energy consumption and wind speed, the chart below will help you decide which turbine best fits your needs.
