The proven 1 KW turbine is designed to be installed at a single dwelling. The wind turbine provides up to 48 volts DC to various appliances such as water heater elements, space heaters, and more. Energy storage is provided by deep cycle lead acid batteries. The system is completely off grid and thus, the electricity generated is "behind" the energy meter. The turbine is installed on top of a "tilt" guyed wire tower for easy installation and maintenance.
