Hi, Welcome Aboard! Sounds good and I'll get the instructions to you this evening. Well the ideal would be a high wind, 30 mph or so, so you would make the most power. They start making power at under 6mph. The energy varies with the windspeed. The cut in or start-up wind speed is between 5 and 6 mph. That is a mere breath of wind and won't even raise a flag.

Anyone wanting a small wind turbine, fill out the contact form and I can connect you with the dealer for your area. There are still areas open in most states for new dealers but many counties and a few entire states are taken up and several people are saying they are going to get their territory. So, if you are interested in becoming a dealer fill out the same form and we can see if your area may still be open.
