Solar Wind Hybrid Off-Grid System


Wind Generators

1   H40 SWWP   900w     35-ft free standing tower

1   W200 SWWP 1000w   45-ft free standing tower

1   W500 SWWP  3000w  65-ft free standing tower

All towers are self supported lattice towers with top-tower- platforms and ladder. One ( 65’) has hinges.. The Whisper 500 is missing its tail boom, and the blades are in need  of TLC. The turbine works  - once the tail and vane is fixed - electrical and mechanical. The W 200 needs new brushes. Both we took out of service as we are ok without them.

Note: The renewable off-grid energy system is professional installed, and set up, to work automatically with minimal maintenance. Our maintenance is pretty much reduced adding water to our batteries once a year. If we left the property for extended visits or winter stays in the southern US for a 3 - 6 month period, we would set the heating  thermostat at 7°C  put the solar system on trickle charge, switched the SaskPower system on, and our power bill would range over the winter at around $ 30.00 / month. The lp gas usage was neglectable.  The system was build in 2000 and a big 48V battery bank came onboard in 2004. The life expectancy of those batteries is between 18 and 25 years. There is a backup inverter installed which was till now never in use, except for test purposes.
