I have a static 4 panel array using 200 watt panels plus a wind turbine fabricated from an old chevy alternator with innards from Wind Blue Power and some PVC. In a stiff breeze and good sun I can get about 900 watts out of it all. I am currently using a Wagan 5000 watt inverter with six 900 amp (rated) Hi-Lift batteries for storage.

Probably going to change to a grid tie soon. Currently working on a tracker to wring more out of the panels. This was a proof of concept project and I plan to expand to reduce dependence on grid power. I am self employed and currently this system is powering my office. Computers, Printers, Fax’s., routers, lights, phones, etc.
