The mini-BRUTE is a downwind design with blades that bend away from excess wind...
converts wind energy to heat, lights and hot water anywhere the wind
you may charge batteries and provide utility grade electricity for
your home or charge your electric car . The Mini-BRUTE
needs no grid, no utility company and no permits. It has no
connection to existing home wiring. Installation is available. The
windmill comes with a 40' cable winch, tilt-down tower, (includes guy

** Compare Mini-BRUTE to Skystream Windmill: SKYSTREAM has only 2.4kw maximum output, requires a power-line, a grid connection, and a utility company agreement. (They can keep part of the output.) SKYSTREAM is made in China and costs over $9,000 installed.
Frequently asked questions about windmills:
What about windmills with less than 3kw output? ... “Small windmills are a swindle!” - Low Tech Magazine 2009
What does crane service cost? Crane service typically costs more than $1,000 each time they set the crane up. Our windmills need no crane service.
Is storing energy viable? Yes. If you are lucky enough to have windpower (a cheap source of energy) it makes sense to store excess energy for use later. This is commonly done by battery bank and inverter for an off-grid situation. It is cheaper and more cost-effective to store wind energy as BTU's of hot water. This serves both for domestic use (baths, dishes, showers, etc) and for home / shop heat. Stored BTU's of hot water can be easily changed into BTU's of hot air for an existing furnace.
Will I have to get an electrical permit to use my Mini-BRUTE? No
