Well with the history side of things , i would love future generations to know that for a brief period in the 30's
wind power was very popular, a bit like the revival of alt energies during the mid 70's.
Established windmill companies like Alston put out a range of mills with a 'Bosch' generator to get in on the
wind electric story, Saunders Engineering in Adelaide manufactured the' Standard Lite'.
Clutterbuck put their name on a wind generator as did the Adelaide Implement Co.
Others were out there also.
32 volt origins anyone? My knowledge of the origins of that eclectic
voltage are limited to what you can find on the net.
