Southwest Windpower Air X Turbine [1]

Southwest Windpower Air X Turbine

The Southwest Windpower Air X wind turbine is an excellent choice for adding renewable, supplemental power at a reasonable price.

According to Southwest Windpower , the AIR is by far the world’s number one selling small wind turbine. The model featured here is a 12 Volt 400 watt generator which can supply power to appliances and electronics. The Air X incorporates a new microprocessor-based technology that results in increased performance, improved battery charging capability, greater reliability and the reduction in the “flutter” noise created by the machine.

The Air X uses a microprocessor controller for efficiency and noise reduction. The controller allows for peak-power tracking of the wind by optimizing the alternator’s output to efficiently deliver energy to the battery bank. The controller will also control blade rotation speed eliminating the buzzing noise commonly found with most small wind turbines. The Air X has an exclusive Auto-Brake-feature that slows the Air X to a silent spin when the batteries are charged thus extending bearing life and reducing noise.
This wind turbine would pay for itself in no time; it costs about $600.00 USD
