Wind Turbine
A compact, silent, lightweight vertical axis wind turbine (VAWT) is perfect for use working alongside solar powered systems. Because a wind turbine can work during the hours of darkness, batteries can continue to be trickle charged when a solar panel becomes inoperable.
It can add valuable power to a system at any time of the day or night when wind exists greater than the cut-in speed of 9mph (4 meters per second). 
This high quality, durable turbine features powder coated aluminum blades and stainless steel hardware. Maximum output is 70W or 150w depending on the selected model. 
It is design for harsh environments and can handle wind speeds over 100mph. 
The turbine features a brushless motor, sealed bearings, and a completely modular design. 
For all hybrid systems, we suggest using our overcharge protection circuitry; however, this wind turbine does not require an external charge control to be installed under normal conditions. 
Due to the low Tip Speed Ratio of the turbine, the turbine output decreases naturally as the battery voltage increases and thus this provides a natural form of charge regulation.

The solar panel must be installed in a location where it can receive full direct sunshine (when available) and usually set facing South at an appropriate angle (where adjustment options allow). The solar panel must not be installed in a shaded or part shaded location and never indoors. The standard specifications of the system (particularly the solar panel Wattage and battery capacity) may need to be adjusted. These components are determined by your geographic location and power consumption. Such changes to the standard specifications may increase or decrease the cost shown. Please contact us for more information or assistance. System performance is subject to various factors including (but not limited to) geographic location, seasons, temperature, weather conditions, location of product, etc. Performance of most solar systems can reduce during winter months when the weather is poor and the days are shorter. During this time insolation hours decrease accordingly. Variations in system perforance due to one or more of the above factors does not define the product as being ‘defective’ or ‘not as described’. Please note, if you do not install or use this product for several months the battery may discharge naturally on its own. By allowing a battery to deep discharge it may cause irreversible damage as the battery may then lose the ability to recharge or hold a full charge. Although unlikely, we reserve the right to supply this product with any minor alterations or minor changes to the specifications (shown above by text description or by photographs) due to different supplies or product batches received, incorporating such product changes made by the manufacturer, without further notice.
