I will be reading the comments in this newsgroup for the next few days and
learning from those that are positive and helpful.

I know that this is an out of topic posting to this newsgroup. That is a
reason that I am posting here. I want to learn from people that are not in
the business of cogenerating energy. I want to read in this newsgroup
valuable comments from a fresh perspective. By off topic posting to random
newsgroups, herein I may gain an honest response.

There are definition links for you to read. There is physics data, and NASA
data that is referenced. I would like your honest opinion. I would like to
read logical responses. Childish screaming about commercial posting or out
of topic posting to this newsgroup will not slow my quest find logical and
valuable responses. Someone on this newsgroup will be able to think for
themselves and will give me an honest and logical response that I may learn
from and potentially use. I look forward to your opinion.

Topic: WIND  POWERED  GENERATORS.

I would like to introduce you to a new wind powered generator company.

These are specifically for LOW wind speeds. These are affordable sized for
the average (non-city) U.S. homeowner.

This is a very small company. These are being built one at a time.

The page is at ReasonablePower.com

http://www.reasonablepower.com

Please take the time to look at the page.

If you have a valuable response whereby I may learn and do better as I build
this company, please post your response to this newsgroup. I will be reading
postings herein for a while.

Thank you.

this isn't off topic


The webpage you've link to doesn't have any physical data.
It appears to a simple price list with a email link to sales.
It's a rather feeble and uncompelling marketing effort.


non-suburbs as well.

Urban and suburban zoning ordinances and community covenants
  are going to disallow wind power generators.


IMHO your webpage is  lacking any photo and what is included with
your wind generator package. Beyond provide a detailed specification
of how your system would performed - it fails to say whether the
price includes installation or whether you provides such a service.
At a minumum you should make sure your webpage has more than
Costco's  ( IIRC they sell a a wind generators for dirt cheap) .

A spec sheet migh include what the min and max  wind speed needed to
operate
electric generator,  the power output ( minimum and maximum VAC/VDC,
amperage),   tower height,  info on the generator's MTBF(duty-cycle).
and
other construction details.

Where a small company might differ from a more established retail
outfit
or company is in its warrany information and maintenance and service
options ( which by the way are not address by your website). If you
are
focused on residential homeowners ( e.g. family farm/ranch) I would
think high reliabilty and low/easy maintenance would very desirable
traites
for a wind turbine.  In addition, a company which provides a turnkey-
total solution than just selling a wind turbine - has a wider market
appeal
than one that only sells a particular component to a energy generation
system.

 Wow this is great!

I knew that this effort needed help.

Thank you very much for your input.

I WILL try to incorporate all of your suggestions if I can.

I am building the first one with some help. I planned to purchase one
commercially, but their math and physics logic seemed to be lacking
continuity, so I checked them out and found some radical misconceptions in
current wind turbine design. They were so extremely out of logic that I have
designed my own. On my personal opinion page
(http://www.reasonablepower.com/1/somethingtosay.htm ) I had some things to
say about what I found. From your response, the link to this page was
overlooked. Maybe I need to make it more obvious?

Thank you for your input.

Really!

Thanks.

Information you should know about wind generators. See the pages for

The link above has photos of the installation of  a  small
