My existing setup is 6.25kwh panels (Canadian Solar) with a 5kwh Sungrow inverter and an LG Resu 10 battery (grid connected on single phase power).
While we normally produce more than enough to cover our usage, top up the battery and send a bit to the grid each day (on a good sunny day we might produce 30-38kwh, send 20kwh to the grid and use the remaining/top up the battery).
Recently we had a week of rain/cloudy conditions where we had to buy 1-3kwh from the grid each day as we didn’t get enough sun to get the battery topped up and cover our use, which got me thinking if adding wind might be possible and economical.
Our house is elevated and a good distance from the neighbours and we a pretty constant breeze (we often don’t need to bother with the fans or AC) and I was thinking maybe we could add a small wind turbine or two into the mix.
I see Amazon Australia has a bunch of ones rated between 400wh - 800wh priced at pretty low prices (between $250-$500)
Has any tried adding wind into the mix? My thinking if I could get two 800wh ones on the roof, even if they only produce half their rated capacity (a total of 800wh) that would more than cover our normal household use (which as long as we aren’t running any major appliance seems to be 300-400wh/h) and keep the battery topped up when we have a week of rain and clouds.
Has anyone integrated wind into an existing system like mine and have any tips on how they did it? I’m just starting to research how to do it/if this is possible/economical but I thought i’d post here to see if anyone and point me in the right direction.
