Small Wind Turbine Product Reviews
This category lists a number of reports on small wind turbines that were tested to international standards. There are also a number of critiques as well as commentaries on small wind turbine products included here as well. It is a continual source of amazement that people will spend tens of thousands of dollars buying a wind turbine before searching to see if there are any reports on whether the turbine works at all and, if it does, how well it works.
