Bornay has its own laboratory in Spain – not clear if other research centers are involved
There are some potential hazards during the operation (danger of proximity of the blades to objects, humans or wildlife), which can be prevented by using appropriate wiring and not letting the turbine run freely without connection to the battery.
A hybrid energy system, such as solar pv, is beneficial in the event of low wind. Bornay also recommends combining solar power with a wind turbine and having a battery bank to store energy.

International standard ISO 9001, appliance standards under EC Directives: 89/392/CEE & 91/368/CEE, as well as the Normative of Security in Small windturbines: UNE-EN-61400-2. Bornay’s larger models have been tested with some others under CIEMAT-CEDER Spanish National renewable Energy center for distributed grids – but the 600 model was not part of these tests.
