Wind Power!

Just wanted to write a quick post on alternate energy here on the compoud.  Right now in the Marshall Islands electricity is at 42 cents a Kilowatt hour.  One of the most expensive in the pacific.  On top of that the generators are all doing major maintenance.  They have been fairly reliable for the last few months but according to experts they are on their last leg.  The power company is behind in paying for fuel and that coupled with  no spare parts causes major problems.
  With out current usage cut down to bare minimums are electricity bill is between 450 to 550 dollars a month.  For the last couple of years we have been putting together a system to get off the grid and on to our own power.  We had three generators online at one time which cut our bill immensely.  We lost a generator a couple of months ago and now we having to use more power plant electricity.  Wings of Eagles in Lakeland, Florida helped us get the wire to get things back online.  Now we are trying to replace the broken wind generator.  The money that we save will help us reach more outer islands with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
  So this post is to give you more information on what we need.  The generator if possible needs to be weather proofed due to the salt air and generate power at 24 volts.  That is all there is to it.  If you would like to help us out in this project please contact us at rikakisteve@gmail.com .  Thank you for all of your prayers and support.
