Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by royster Good off-grid product
The quality seems good. You need a steel pole to mount the unit on and the manual says 20ft high. I use this product to help provide power to an outlet building. It keeps my 12V AGM batteries charged to run lights and electronics. Charging kicks in around 12mph and best charging after 20mph. This is a perfect compliment to my small solar array. I love using off-grid products!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by TinkeringTom Make sure you install it high enough - Great Product
I just finished installing it on the weekend so it is a little early to comment on the long terms quality but so far, I love it! I am getting much more out of this wind turbine than my solar panels. I was advised to install it at least 20 feet high and I am glad I did as it seems the wind is much better above the trees. It took me and a friend most of the afternoon to install it but we did a good job and watching it spin and create energy puts a smile on my face.

So far disappointing start as it doesn't seem to generate under 19 mph wind speed. Hope for better after 109 hour bearing break in period

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CaptBob i have 2 other wind turbines and like the performance and the value of the Nature Power turbine.
I like the watt meter. The green LED light is a little too bright. Good value for the money.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by UnhappyCamper Soldering? Seriously?
If you buy a TV or a Blu-Ray player would you expect to have to solder the circuit board together? Well you have to do a lot of precision electronics work before you're even ready to mount this unit on the pole. I don't mind a few bolts for the props, etc., but this is ridiculous.
Shopping around for other units that don't require you to be Nikola Tesla to get it to work.

I have several wind turbines at the ranch on several cabins, i liked the concept of this unit, but it has never delivered. After many hours on the line with the tech support at nature power, and having done all there recommendations, the unit is still not performing according to there specifications, 90 % of the time with winds under 20 miles per hour it will over speed and shut down. today they said i may have a bad unit, but of course i have to go and find my receipt because they don't do warranty from the factory site....Buyer Be Ware

Easy to hook up. I had a charge controller that jump around all over the place and couldn't read it. I waited almost 6 weeks before I got a replacement charge controller. I had to order a new set of blades as something hit the blades during a bad wind storm. I also had to wait almost 6 weeks for that order also. They do not answer their phone, as the manager at HD left several messages, and he said they never returned his calls. After getting a replacement charge controller it went out again after 6 days. Then the wind turbine just stopped turning. So if you buy this, and want to repair it a lot, and it is not fun when it is 20' or 30' on a pole, like I have been doing, good luck. HD is refunding my money, and I am buying a different wind turbine from HD, as they have been very helpful with this problem, and others also.
