Hi, Kris! Sorry I didn't respond - I didn't know I would get messages here!
We bought the wind turbine from a man in Wisconsin, and he had local help in installing it. It has become quite a sore subject, though. It hasn't been working since October, because we can't get him out here to fix it. Eric Cotton (bless his heart!) has taken on the job now, but it's been slow going this winter, with no breaks in the weather. We never really set out to be environmentally-minded folks, but we just have kind of worked our way into more and more areas - but there is always room to improve! Have a great day!
