“I’ve long wanted to get a wind turbine since several of my neighbors have this spinning device on their rooftops, but I must admit I know very little about it. A friend recommended this GudCraft product, and since I trust his judgment, I finally made an order. It was well packaged, arrived promptly and came with a user’s manual which was a real good thing. With the help of my friend, I had the turbine mounted and the generator connected to a 12-volt deep cycle battery. In no time at all, the blades were spinning, but it took a real strong gust of wind before it registered any power. I waited for two days to see if the battery will be fully charged by then, unfortunately even on the 3rd day it was not even half full, only to find out that there was something wrong with the connection of the generator. Thanks to my friend, this was easily corrected, and now the battery is fully charged, and remains charged. It powers 2 light bulbs, my lap top, and a coffee maker in my beach cabin. ”
“This wind turbine supplements two solar panels I’ve installed on my property. All three devices work efficiently to generate power for my ranch house. In fact I even some surplus power flowing back to the main grid. Whether it’s generating 1000 watts or not is not the issue, it is producing power, and I’m happy with it. ”
“If you plan to use this GudCraft WG1000 1KW 1000W 12 Volt Wind Turbine Residential Commercial Wind Generator as a standalone power generator, then you’ll be disappointed. I recommend that you use it as a trickle battery charger instead.”
The GudCraft WG1000 1KW 1000W 12 Volt Wind Turbine Residential Commercial Wind Generator, from the experience of other users aside from our respondents, is operational at a wind speed of around 8 mph, but starts generating power at a steady wind speed of around 30 to 35mph. It actually generates the assured 1 KW or 1000 watt to charge a 12-volt battery pack, but our reviewer is right, this is best as a trickle battery charger or as a add-on to other renewable power generator such as solar panels. For all these reasons, the best rating we can give this wind turbine is a 4-star.
