Home Power Stand-Alone System
A Stand-Alone system means that there is no grid connection. Vacation homes, and remote sites, often have no electrical service. To install power lines to bring in electrical service can cost $25,000 per mile depending on terrain. For remote sites, a stand-alone wind power system can be configured to provide power on-demand and run the loads of the site.
As with other applications of wind, the first step is to define your load, both in terms of Power and Energy.
The Power is a list of all the Power Ratings of your appliances, to which you’ll list a corresponding Hours of use per day. Adding all of these KWH loads for each appliance will give you a total Daily KWH Load.
Convert your Daily KWH Load into a Monthly load by multiplying by 30.41 days/Month. Now you have your Monthly Energy Load in KWH/Month.
Typical Home Power Stand-Alone Wind Generators:
AIR X 400 Watts -12, 24, and 48 VDC
WHISPER 100 900 Watts - 24, and 48 VDC
WHISPER 200 1,000 Watts -24, and 48 VDC
WHISPER 500 3,000 Watts, 48 VDC
SKYSTREAM 3.7/Battery 1,800 Watts, 24, and 48 VDC
ARE 110 2,500 Watts, 48 VDC
ARE 442 10,000 Watts, 48 VDC
Each of these Wind Generators come with Tower Options. The higher to the Tower the faster the wind speed, the more power your given turbine can produce. Towers usually are available in Lattice Type, Guy-Wire Type, Tripod Type, and Monopole Type.
