Hello Michael,
We do have a middle of the road submersible pump that will provide around 2.17 GPM with a total lift of 60 feet. It is our SunRise submersible pump 5226 which normally operates at 48 volts but you can power it off a 12 volt battery and still get 66% of the rated flow. It is not possible to run any of our pumps directly off a wind generator at this time so we will have to do a pump that is operated off of batteries and use a wind generator to charge the batteries.

SunRise 5226 Submersible Pump, 48V

In order to design the complete system I will have to calculate how many hours per day the pump will operate. If you can tell me how many gallons you need per day then I can put a system quote together that includes the pump, battery controller, wind generator and batteries.
