Future Energy's New ‘rugged’ Upwind Turbine range is based on 2 years of real-life testing and development in Warwickshire and the Uplands of Scotland.
Using unique Permanent Magnet Generators, combined with our Hi-Spec Wind Turbine Blade Sets, these furling turbines create very useful power in low wind conditions, and over 1000W in winds of 12.5m/s.
Available in 12V, 24V & 48V DC versions, they are suitable for battery charging, water/air heating and Grid-Tie installations.
We don’t recommend, nor will we authorise the installation of any of our turbines in ‘building-mounted’ installations, other than for steel-framed and other industrial buildings. These turbines are tower-top ready (turbine sleeve has a 50mm diameter hole to accept 48.3mm standard scaffold pole). We are currently developing our own tower kits & will post more information when it is available. For a complete guide to towers, system designs and grid-tied inverters.
Your turbine will be supplied in 2 shipping containers, weighing a total of 27Kgs, and you will be required to attach the tailfin and blades to the main turbine housing. All instructions will be supplied to guide you through the simple assembly, and you should be ready to mount and use your turbine in only a few hours. For battery charging applications we suggest that you use a suitable charge controller to prevent your batteries from becoming overcharged.
