What wind turbine systems are available?
- Grid Connected
This system is used to sell electricity back to the electricity supply company by connecting the wind turbine to the national electricity grid.
- Battery Back-Up
This system is used to keep a battery bank charged so that when a mains grid power failure occurs essential appliances such as freezers are kept running. The battery can also be used to power everyday appliances and not just when the mains grid fails.
This system can be used to heat water or air. Heating elements can be connected to the wind turbine to produce heat.
This system is a combination of the Grid Connected System and/or the Battery Back-Up System and/or the Heating System.
