Is Sencenbaugh Wind Electric still in Business?


I am trying to find out if the manufacture of the Sencenbaugh 1000-14 Wind Generator is still in business.

Back in the 1980's I installed a Sencenbaugh 10kw Wind Generator on a 120 foot tower in north Central Vermont. I recently visited the property, (it has changed hands a couple of times). The current owners are really interested in have the turbine functional again. The prior owner never did any maintenance on any part of the system, which led to the system failing.

The tower/wind generator is still up, however the blades have since completely shattered. We are considering various alternatives, including a NEW Turbine installation , or restoring the existing turbine. At the time of original installation, the system was not tied into the grid, operated as a stand alone system with a bank of deep cycle batteries and inverter. operated flawlessly for several years until I sold the property. The year round average windspeed is north of 12 mph, so never ran out of power.

So in the interest of possible restoration, I am searching for the original manufacture and or original operating/installation manuals.

Any advice or information would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
