I may have missed it but what's the minimum wind speed required for the regulator to start charging a 12v battery? If my average wind speed is higher, then it should work most of the time.

@nickwv I would love to measure this more accurately but I estimate the minimum wind speed required is around eight meters per second. Access to clean air and higher elevation is likely to improve yield but if your average wind speed is higher anyway then it should work well.
