In the pictures I see what appears to be wind generators. I have considered building a system with wind and solar that is portable. That is trailer mounted. I've just begun thinking in that direction. Wind, solar, and gasoline generator all on wheels. The wind generator I think I would mount on folding pole. Something I could move to where it might do the most good.
