We have bought sevral of these cheap wind turbines from Hornet Wind Turbines. The sensational advertising when compared to the rest of the industry is to be laughed at in retrospect. We were new to wind power and had no idea what to expect or what should be realistic. The guy had 100 percent feedback on e bay and it looked like it was legit. We did not install these units for several months after purchase at which time it is too late to get your money back. Further research indicated many others are having the same experiences and this cheap thing came to us rusted out of the box. The advertised 1600 watt output is laughable. 300 watts max in 50 mph plus wind.
After sanding and painting we have never seen more than 1/6 th tha advertsied output of these products max. We have contacted numerouse other companies in the same line of business which pretty much universally regarded the business as a scam. They did not use those words but all stated you are not going to see the advertised power out of the units. So in short these turbines are made with blastic and thin gauge rusting metal, no carbon fiber and do not turn until high winds yet are descrived as low wind performing products. The advertisment that consumers can make a wind farm for 25 cents per watt is blantantly:
untrue or misleading, and which is known, or which by the exercise of reasonable care should be known, to be untrue or misleading
My wind farm will have a payback period of "never"
We will be doing a chargeback on our credit card for these items and making a report to:

If you have had similar experiences we advise one you get an expensive watt meter stop listening
to the smooth talker because the conclusion i have drawn is simply these guys know they are lying
and it is their scam.
