WOW that topic kicked something off, will take me a while to digest everything, thanks so far!!
still waiting for a response from gotwind.org but reckon it didnt proof to be successful for production
as this prototype was developed back in 2007...
A month ago i contacted http://www.modernoutpost.com/
for their solarpanel systems they told me:
In terms of what you'll need, I think your system should be fairly simple. I will ask you for your expected run times for each device (ie how many days do you get from a battery in each device?). I can then work out a power budget, and suggest products to keep up with your demand.
Trouble is that i have not all electrical gear together yet, to work out my powerbudget...a lot of homework ahead...
With the windpower i just found that it would harness a bit more potential power not relying only on daylight and the device would be out of the way(topmast) plus acting as a wind indicator. With the solarpanels i would be afraid to step on it or taking up valuable space.
