Hi guys new here I have a question. So hey I love all these alternative energy products and diy turbines and solar panels so it got me thinking right...I was wondering if I created a lot of wind turbines how would I tie them all together and tie them to the grid. I like the thought of my house being artful and alive! Where I could utilize every available space with scrap parts to create not just art but Energy! and not to mention a good hobby. Is there a way to tie all of them together? and say I wanted to add solar panels too can I do that as well? Look forward to hearing from you all.

Thanks!

after searching I think what I'm looking for is a combiner box. ? Then from there to an inverter/grid tie system. Sorry trying to gather as much information together before I start any builds.

Hey John,

This answer will be different dependent on your location but if a grid tied system is what you want, your first step should be to determine what your utility provider allows. For instance in Kansas City, KCPL has whole process for grid tie with a list of rules and limits for approval. One of these said rules is that all systems, wind or otherwise must be UL (Underwriters Laboratories) compliant. Give them a call and investigate.

If you want to explore battery systems you still have plenty of options. Especially with a creative mind! Check out www.battery1234.com for a start. Steven Harris has a lot of info on batteries.

Good luck and be safe.
