Small Wind Turbine Generator by Pacific Sky Power

Small Wind Turbine Generator by Pacific Sky Power is a company dedicated towards using clean energy to create power. They manufacture small wind turbines which need minimum wind power to produce electricity.

Though the turbines they manufacture can produce enough electricity to charge 12 volt batteries, they are not meant to run your appliances when directly connected to them. The small wind turbine will trickle charge a 12 volt battery without over charging it. The turbine comes with a diode that prevents backfeed from the battery you are charging.

The small wind turbines when used in conjunction with 12 volt batteries and an inverter can power some of your electrical appliances.

Mounting for the Small Wind T/G

It is a one piece construction which means that you can mount it straight out of the box without any assembly. It is designed so that it can be mounted anywhere you have sufficient wind for it to produce electricity.

It does not need a special tower, you can mount it on your deck, fence or even on a tree. It comes with a 8 foot power cable and has a 15 inch propeller to help it turn in even the minimum wind. It is very compact with dimensions of 3 x 15 x 1.5 inches and it weighs in at only 1 lb.

Though the motor is not sealed in a housing it can withstand wet weather. If needed you can get a Replacement Motor for Pacific Sky Power’s Small Wind Turbine Generator

Wind Speeds

The Small wind turbine is designed to produce 15 watts of DC electrical power. It starts producing electricity in wind speeds as low as 8 mph.

The turbine can handle 40 mph winds, but if you have winds of over 40 mph you will need to replace the propeller with a fiber glass reinforced propeller. Found here: Replacement Prop for Pacific Sky Power’s Small Wind Turbine Generator

Connecting Multiple Wind Turbines

You can also connect more than one turbine to get an increased power output but it is advised that you connect them to a Charge Controller so that you do not over charge your batteries.

Usability

The small wind turbine is an ideal and green way to convert wind into electric power. This turbine is very small and portable and can be a source of power wherever you have sufficient wind to turn the propeller. It can be used at home or be taken camping or used in your RV or hut in the woods to charge 12 volt batteries that can be connected to an inverter to power your electrical appliances. It can also be used along with solar panels to increase the wattage delivered to your batteries.

The small wind turbine generator from Pacific Sky Power is small and portable and can be mounted anywhere to provide you with clean electric power to charge your 12 volt batteries. Being able to connect it in parallel with other small wind turbines you can increase output for quicker or more charging capability. If you use them in parallel you should consider getting a charge controller so that you do not over charge your batteries.

You might also like to get a battery tender harness to connect your battery to the wind turbine. Such as the Battery Tender 081-0148-25 25′ Quick Disconnect Extension Cable

Drawbacks

There are a couple of drawbacks of the small wind turbine generator. It needs constant wind to keep producing electricity and has to be at least 8 mph. The propeller that it comes with cannot withstand high winds and also it does not come with a wind vane and can only face one direction. It is a bit expensive for its size.
