    The performance of the Allgaier 6-8 kW wind electric generator at a site in the Khapat Agricultural Farm in Porbandar has been examined. The actual electric energy produced a t various wind speeds has been13; compared with the energy calculated on the basis of the power-speed characteristics of the generator, supplied by the manufacturers. Ihe cost of power has also been estimated. The cost per kWh works out to 19 nP. without battery and 45 nP.with battery. The cost of pumping 1,000 gallons of water works out to 12 nP. a s against 35 nP. in the case of a 10 h.p. diesel engine working alongside the wind electric generator,
