    Awesome Jon. Nice to see it pushing some power. What wall meter is that? Never seen that style before.

    BTW, I just crunched some numbers on that "top pole" and in high winds in might break. WN recommends 1.5" Schedule 80 and the guy wire at 40-inches. This matches well with my calcs. The Pole inches is that "top pole" above the last support point. A bending stress >22,000 psi will break the pipe. These charts are unfurled. You really don't want to see the 50 mph numbers!! I'd hate for you to lose the turbine. That is one reason why WN uses a furling mount - first to save the PMA from overproducing, and secondly so that a normal tower does not blow over.

  3. thanks minnesota i kinda thought i should beef it up ill get on it. Thing is powerin out tonight its nice and windy
