It was great to work on 1kw Bergey today.
We were able to hoist down the turbine and repair the electrical components that were damaged.
replaced the rectifying circuit and some old transfer wiring.
lifted it up back in place like new to start making power again.
Like always it was great to service another customer that needed us.
