RE: HURRICANE ISABEL 09/2003

A letter from a VERY happy Eagle HT2 customer:
I am one very happy owner of your HT 2 wind turbine. It flew through the hurricane Isabel flawlessly, as did the SEA charge controller. This was the first opportunity I have had to see it work in high wind conditions. I have only praise for the design, function, and durability. It is a very quiet turbine, a barely audible whispering hiss could be heard while standing at the base of the mast and had no detectable vibration of any kind. I do not have any testing equipment to give you technical data. I did wire in an indicator to let me know when the dump load was being powered. The turbine is on the short mast as you have advised, with the 6 blade prop, wired into a 12 V DC battery bank, using the SEA charge controller per your diagram. A no frills, basic, stock setup. The indicator went off and on as the batteries were discharged and replenished.

This is a very neighbor friendly wind turbine, its near silent operation makes it unobtrusive, I painted the blade tips yellow, as is the body, hub and tail, making it resemble a giant sunflower. Considering zoning limits, I classify it as a lawn ornament. My concerns of neighbor complaints were needless, all of them frequently stop by, look and marvel, waiting for a breeze to start it turning and ask endless questions about it.

I live just across the river from Washington, DC. The hurricane here was bad, but could have been much worse. They say a million people are without power throughout the region and likely will be for days. I am enjoying adequate power needs for my home. I have loaned out my portable and backup generators. ........................

Thank you again.
Sincerely, C.J.
Virginia
