Wind Turbine Stats for Ratooragh Weather Systems

Latitude is 51 33.33 N Longitude is 9 37.75 W Altitude is 60m

600W - 800W Wind Turbine with 3m diameter from Hugh Piggot Design
I built this in the spring of 2012, but only have data from September 2012 due to some teething problems at the start and developing the software to log the data.
Where you see a zero in the data that is likely to be when the turbine was damaged in some way. You can see details about these events here
I replaced the original Wood Baldes for Aluminium ones in early September 2018
Those broke in August 2020 and replaced by 4mm thick blades in September 2020

The Wind Turbine Data is from September 2012 to Date
