Has anyone had any experince with KISS wind generators? Noise and output. We are going to be taking a years cruise and would like to keep the batteries "topped" up. Use no lower than 50% AGM, use enfine to charge to 90%, then use wind for final 10%. We would like to use solar but space is an issue and by the time you add stainless brackets to the cost we may never be able to leave the dock.

I have had a KISS for about 6 months, it is great! Very quiet and an excellent output. With one 1000 watt solar panel it copes easily with our electrical demands in the tropics, including a large 12volt fridge. I cannot praise the Kiss enough, no other wind generator comes close!

Fair winds,

Bill Robinson

1000 watt solar panel?

Seriously?

That should have been 100 watt, a simple mistake!

We've met quite a few people who own Kiss wind generators since we saw the place where they were being built in Trinidad, back in '98 and heard about what set them apart from other makes. Everyone we have asked says they are quiet, efficient and head and shoulders above the competition. Wish we had bought one while we were there!
