Wind energy is a well established form of electrical generation that is used around the world. The modern wind turbines are built to adapt to all kinds of wind and weather conditions. Mechanical power is created when blades turn in the wind and rotate a generator to produce electricity. This electrical current is then sent to an electrical power cable that can carry the electricity to any destination.
Wind turbines are ideal for home, cottage, marine, industrial and commercial applications. Combined with solar power, wind power provides an additional energy source, particularly during the winter months when the annual seasonal climate changes and local winds will increase providing more energy. There are a variety of sizes and models of wind turbines with some turbine models designed to perform better under certain wind conditions. Ensure you buy a machine rated for Newfoundland high wind locations.
SW Energy offers a full product line of wind turbines as well the manufactured tower systems and accessories.
The Air 30 is recommended for small-battery charging applications such as small cabins, RVs, camping, garden lighting, education, hobbies and more. The Air 30 is an ideal wind turbine for hybrid systems with solar. It is also the turbine recommended for Newfoundland weather as it is built for the changing winds.
