Yes, you may combine the solar system with the wind turbine for additional energy. The wind turbine has an integrated charge controller, so there is no need for a larger charge controller then your currently have with the 60 watt solar system.

Staff Answer
The turbine is producing either 12 or 24 volt DC power. The three phase AC is converted to DC and sent to the charge controller. The charge controller will automatically detect if you are using 12 or 24 volt batteries and convert it. On a 90 foot run between the turbine and the charge controller, the manufacturer recommends using 8 gauge wire.
