Rentschler Electric

Robert Rentschler has both wind and solar installations at his place of business. These pictures were taken on a stormy evening and the wind generator was putting out near max, while the solar panels were doing nothing. This is a Southwest Windpower unit rated at 2.5 KW.

The software on the wind generator is a nice touch as it gives near instantaneous readings as well as cumulative.

He also has 2.5KW of Sharp photovoltaic panels on tall poles in front of the shop. They are on fixed mounts and only the tilt is adjustable. He is considering the possibility of two axis trackers in the future.
