Comments from Jeff Jones of Mountain Power and Solar, LLC
As the President of a company that designs, installs and maintains
residential and commercial alternative energy systems I personally
test and validate products before we recommend them to customers.
Here in Colorado at altitudes between 8000 and 10000 feet above sea
level, electricity through wind generation is not always the best
choice. This is due primarily to the density of the air. Wind
generators that perform well in other parts of the country fail
miserably at our altitude.
As we looked at the TLG 500, we found the power output at 9000 feet
above sea level to be equal to a unit rated at almost twice the
rating of the TLG 500. In addition to the great power from the TLG,
we also noticed it starts to create useable power well before the
others, which makes it great for our days of low to medium wind.
We do not believe the TLG will be exempt from damage due to
lightning, but we like the fact it is field serviceable with many
parts such as the bearings and rectifiers available locally.
This means our customers will not have to wait the customary month
to get wind power back after lightning damage.
We recommend this generator to anyone looking at small to medium
range wind power generation units and look forward to the release of
the TLG grid tie unit in the near future.
