Alternative Energies house hookup?
I was wondering if there is a name for a specific term. I want to create a wind or water turbine using old PC fans and rectifier diodes (which i have successfully done before). I intend to create many of these and hopefully hook them to my house which is currently still on the main grid. But i was wondering this. Is there a way that i can hook up the output wires from the diodes (where the useful energy comes from) to a battery bank (which i have also created) and then make it so that when those are full, it supplies the extra occasional energy from the wind turbine, to any part of the house that might need it? and then when the power goes out the batteries kick in?
If not, is there a way i can make it so the batteries will fully charge off the wind turbine, then when fully charged, they will kick in and supply power to part of my house until they run out, and then allow it to switch back to the main grid while the wind tubines recharge the batteries? I have a large house so i know that my house can never be completely 24/7 dependant on wind/solar/water power.
