Hey guys,

do any of you know where i can find either a new or secondhand turbine and controller, 1kw or 1.5kw? i don't want to spend an arm and a leg, just want to play with it and see what it can do for my batteries at night, we have constant breeze blowing off the water around 6m per second

What are the prices and sizes of your turbines, Mike?

from 300w 12v up to 50kw  prices range from R6900 to R2,2mil excl for turbines, plus then controllers, data loggers, variable speed drives..essentially anything solar

Did you sell the 400W unit?

 

40db at 50m is ok, but who as a 50m yard?

Guess it is just envy talking....

ja returned to supplier a few years back, just did not perform in the residential area - too many trees and buildings....my yard is 30m deep?? so i will surely find out
