    I'm still looking for a more specific answer to my question regarding grid tie inverters I need to know witch inverter I need to purchase for use with your 500w wind generator, without the use of a battery bank. :?

    I have the same question Lee. I want to use a wind turbine to supplement my electricity...not to charge a battery bank. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

    I would take a look at the Out Back grid tie units: ... /grid_tie/

    They are a nice high quality unit.

    SWEA also makes much cheaper (compared to Out Back) 250, 500 and 1000 Watt grid tie units. But I know nothing about their quality or track record.

    Has anyone had any good luck with a grid tie inverter that works well with the WindyNation PMA? I was hoping to find something scaleable that would allow me to add solar or other systems later. Thanks

    You must be Larry. Wow, I've really enjoyed your youtube videos. You are the MAN!!! The videos you have put out are so on topic and informative. You've provided some great info, and I'm glad to see that you've joined our blog. WELCOME I currently own a SWEA 1KW inverter box and a SUNG-500w inverter. I've been battling with my frame when I have time to work on this project, and am waiting on a 750 from Josh. I hope to have many more conversation with you regarding setting up a 500 and a 750 using the same components you are using. Also, I'd like to talk with you about buying a box to support my SunG inverter. Thanks again for all you have done to support the Do it yourself clan.
    Happy Thanksgiving, BEACHBUM :D
