Blocking diode for wind gen

I have 2 100 watt solar panels wired to a controler. I also have a 4 winds gen fired into the same delivery . When I have no wind and sunlight the wind geerator will start to turn. I split the positive to the wind gen with a toggle switch. I was hopping to add a blocking diode instead of the toggle switch. What type should I use?Cheers

One of these should do nicely.
