X-600 Wind Generator EW-1000 unit mounted on building EW-1000 Wind Generator Planetary Systems has limited our HAWT product line to two manufacturers for low and high power wind generators with two distinct operating scenarios. There are many Horizontal wind turbines available but we based our criteria on function, wind survivability and replacement parts availability and how easy they are to repair, rather than power output alone. The following are the best units available based on these criteria. They require monopole towers less than 15′ average and can be easily installed and removed. X-600 HAWT 600 $1,280.00 36lb 24/48vdc Blade Diameter: 6′ Availability: 2 weeks Details: Horizontal axis wind turbine rated 600w and suitable for use in moderate to high wind areas on standard monopole towers with digital controller with amps, volts, watts and rpm display. More Information: Requires 4 Comments: Requires 4″ steel pipe mount. Pole adaptor available for $ 395.00. Warranty -3 years. Price for 800w/48v model is $1500.00 Printable PDF: X-600W Product Information EW-1000 1000 $2,844.00 45lb 24/48vdc Blade Diameter: 6.5′ Availability: 2 weeks Details: Larger blade swept area wind generator rated 1000w for low to moderate wind ares with intermittent high winds. Comes with our Digital controller and resistor load dump. More Information: Requires 4″ sched-40 steel pipe and adaptor Comments: This unit was chosen for the overall wind survivability and efficiency but for the ability to be rebuilt and easy replacement parts supply. It performs well in nearly every climate and comes with our digital controller reading amps and volts plus resistor load dump. Adaptor for pipe available for $325 Printable PDF:  EW-1000 Product...

VAWT units are great for urban areas and connect directly to our Power Package. We offer several types of machines, with several different designs. We have tested and used these or prototypes on our shop system and found they work well in the sometimes very high winds here in Ennis. call for discount pricing and operation information on any VAWT unit. We offer the C-type and Darieus-Savonius VAWT units which are a low cost way to utilize wind energy when using our Power Package system without large towers or expensive, over-rated wind generators. The WKV-600 and WKV-1000 wind generators can be used anywhere in any climate and are the ultimate in high end technology for wind power. C-300W     300 Watts    $1,995.00 5″ blade Dia.     5 Blades     125lb     24-48vdc Availability: 3-4 weeks Details:  Vertical axis wind turbine rated 300 watts for any location-mounts on 3″ or 4″ sched-40 steel pipe at 10′ height minimum and rated for 300 watts output. The C-type wind generator employs planetary gear technology where every turn of the wind blades equals 3 turns of the generator rotor to produce high power at low rpm. Comments:  Unit suitable for nearly any location-tower kit required for 4″ sched-40 steel pipe as tower. Analog or Digital controller available-see PDF for pricing. Printable PDF: C-300W Product Information C-500W     500 watts         $2,495.00 Dia-6 feet     7-Blades     150lbs     24vdc-48vdc Availability:  3-4 weeks Details:  Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) with controller for mounting on 4″ sched-40 steel pipe at approx 7-10′ level about ground. The C-type wind generator employs planetary gear technology where every turn of the wind blades equals 3 turns of the generator rotor to produce high power at low rpm. Comments:  Tower adaptor required for any pipe other than 4″ sched-40 steel. Add $295 for typical tower adaptor. No tilt tower required. Analog or Digital controller available-see PDF for pricing Printable PDF: C-500W Product Information C-1KW     1000 watts         $4,150.00 Dia -8.25 feet     5-Blades     187lbs     24vdc-48vdc Availability:  3-4 weeks Details:  Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) unit with 1000 watts rated output and for mounting on 5″ sched-40 steel pipe-similar to C-500 unit. The C-type wind generator employs planetary gear technology where every turn of the wind blades equals 3 turns of the generator rotor to produce high power at low rpm. Comments:  This unit requires a 5″ sched-40 steel tower of any height above 7″ from ground...

Wind Switch

We have noticed a great increase in the reporting of large wind storms with winds in excess of the average reported winds in many areas. These winds may have something to do with the current weather patterns we are seeing and with the fact the the low level jetstream is inducing high winds, much higher than previously noted. This is having an effect on ours and other wind turbines and some damages have been reported. The only way to avoid this is using a “wind-switch” which notes wind increases and shuts off the wind unit before the wind gets into the damaging range.   Wind Switch:  $355.00 Requires 12vdc Availability: 1-week Details: This device includes an anemometer and relay with wind indication which will detect winds as they approach a settable speed which will then temporarily disable the wind unit till the wind gets back to an acceptable level Comments: Connects to all Planetary Systems wind controller units. Auxiliary relay required for some other...
