We’ve been doing a monthly YouTube giveaway at Missouri Wind and Solar and, as you may know, the February giveaway contest has come to a close. That means the contest winner-submitted videos are starting to roll in. For our most recent giveaway we had four different prize winners:
First Place Winner: One hundred watt, 12 volt Solar Cynergy solar panel
Second Place Winner: One 5 blade, 24 volt 300 watt wind turbine with charge controller
Third Place Winner: One 5 blade, 24 volt 500 watt furling tail wind turbine with charge controller
Fourth Place Winner: One 3 blade, 24 volt 300 watt wind turbine with charge controller
To hear a list of contest winners as well as a preview of what will be in the March Giveaway (Contest #6), watch Jeff’s video below. We know you’ll be excited about the prizes!

Take a look at Craig’s custom painted Missouri Wind and Solar 7 Blade Freedom Wind Turbine Featuring the Raptor Generation 4 (Raptor G4) Blades and the Freedom PMG™.
Craig gave his Freedom Wind Turbine a custom look with a classic green enamel on the Stars & Stripes Wind Turbine Tail and the 7 Blade Hub. Then he taped off his Raptor G4 Blades and gave each blade tip a coat of black for contrast. We like the way this wind turbine turned out!
Looks aren’t all that matters, Craig also mentioned that he’s impressed by the non-cogging Freedom PMG and is getting great performance already.
Watch our video below as Jeff explains how to properly paint and assemble your own Missouri Freedom Wind Turbine:
Dave N. has done a fantastic job putting together not just his Missouri Falcon Mach 5 wind turbine, but has gone the extra mile with this professional job mounting and labeling his electronics as well as building a nice housing for his battery bank.

In late 2013 we announced our newest development in wind power generation – the permanent magnet generator. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what makes the Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom PMG™ superior to other products on the market.

What’s new on the inside:
Now that the Freedom PMG™ and the Freedom II PMG™ have been on the market for a couple of months, how has it performed?
So easy to turn, a baby can do it! Seriously, the Freedom and Freedom II PMG™ are extremely easy to turn – they have NO COGGING. This also means they have a cut-in wind speed of just 6 MPH (that’s 2.68 m/s) to start producing power in very low wind areas.
Charles McCune has shared his Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom II PMG™ output on his wind and solar YouTube channel, McCuneWindandSolar, showing 1 kilowatt output at 25-30 MPH winds.
Here is a very basic turbine installation of our Missouri Wind and Solar 7 Blade Basic Wind Turbine on a 10 foot water pipe. ACSolarWind wanted to share his wind turbine installation with us and you too, so here it is! Make sure you check out the other videos on his YouTube channel – they’ve got some very cool robotics projects happening over there.
