    I would like to buy the WindTura 750 and also to build a VAWT.
    Can I connect the two to the windtura 750 charge controller?
    In principle the two wind turbine generates different currents and therefore in principle one can connect them in parallel to the charge controller. Is that correct? (unless they are considered as voltage generator in which case they should be connected in series.)

    You could connect two 750's (one from a VAWT and the other a HAWT) using one C60 Xantrex Charge Controller. You can wire the two units in series or parallel as long as you do it after the rectifiers.
