Wind and Solar
We are in the process of retiring. We will continue to support our customers with technical support, and still have a lot of old inventory to get rid of. I will no longer be available to do installations.
The KISS wind generator is not currently available. We have most of the parts and technical support, but are traveling more now, and so not available for the month of June 2018.

John and Libbie are Florida Gulf Coast alternative energy pioneers, first using wind and solar for cruising sailboats power on their boat s/v Hotwire, then RV, and home, now offering their expertise and experience to others since 1998.

NOTE: I am not a Florida registered or certified contractor. Even though I have technical training, passed the state tests, and have years of experience installing solar equipment onto boats, RVs and ambulances, the state licensing board will not give me a license because I have never worked for a contractor.
