Product Description


Why you should consider purchasing an AWT Wind Turbine
The Vertical Axis Wind Turbine manufactured at AWT has the following attributes to give you many years of trouble free operation and savings, with the following advantages:

  • By design there is no chance of over speeding and going out of control. Its maximum spin speed is kept low at around a relaxing 70rpm no matter how hard the wind might blow. A nice, slow, non-threatening spin, akin to your parent’s old 78’s on their record players!
  • No noise from “whooshing “blades chopping the air up, just quietly getting on with the job.
  • No danger to bird life, as it appears to them as a solid object.
  • No wild sudden swinging to face the wind, as it can use the wind coming from any direction
  • Very robust. This unit is a “get and forget”. Made from aluminium, fiberglass and nylon, with climate protected steel only where necessary, it has been designed to last for as long as possible.

So, what can you do with the power you generate?
There are two main directions to choose from:

  • Either you are Grid Tied (you feed the power back into the grid to save on your electricity bill) which requires the least electronics and batteries and therefore is the more affordable, NB there is no back up power using this method, however this can be overcome using a UPS etc, or
  • Off Grid. You can store the power in batteries for your own use when needed and not be reliant on the “Mains”. This requires considerable Battery storage capabilities and more powerful electronics, and more Solar Panels – which boost’s the costs considerably, don’t forget Battery life and their replacement costs too.
