The 12 gauge extension cord runs out of the bottm of the tower.

Cord going through wall

A 1/2 inch hole is drilled through the outside wall to the inside of the cabin.

watt meter running

A watt meter was placed inline of the cable. It will help measure the volts and any potential amps generated from the small wind turbine.

Cord then run through the top floor to under the cabin. Plan to clean up theses cord at a later date.

The wind turbine has only two wires that supply DC power to the batteries. Will install 10 amp fuse on the positive side.
