I have lots of wind where I live and plan on building lots of wind mills. What all have you guys run on wind power. Water, electricity, grist mill, veg grinder/ fodder chopper?

When I started learning about renewable energy the electricity power was divided into critical loads and non critical loads.  Solar panels were extremely expensive then so Power was more limited by the cost factor. You’re fortunate to have steady wind. How much do you have? . Some people put up a weather station first to measure data. Solar panels are inexpensive now so I would probably combine them with wind power.
