Wind turbines for homes in remote and exposed locations are an ideal way to potentially provide electricity 24 hours a day as an off-grid installation. 40% of Europe’s wind crosses the UK, harnessing this energy with a wind turbine requires the right location, system design and equipment which we can provide at Remotepower.
A wind turbine can be combined with other off-grid technologies such as Solar PV and Hydro to make a more continuous and reliable supply. A domestic wind turbine, with the right controller, can be used for direct heating as an excellent way to heat the home as wind generally accompanies inclement weather.
The Leading Edge wind turbine is an efficient, quiet and durable design originally built to generate electricity in harsh environments making this model suitable for domestic, marine, commercial and industrial use. Leading Edge design and manufacture in the UK.
In a typical domestic off grid installation, the Leading Edge turbine will be mounted either on a tower or in a suitably exposed location and would be connected to batteries through a Run/Stop switch that both provides a safety brake and isolates it from the electrical circuit when required. The wind turbine is connected to a charge controller to regulate the power and once the batteries are full the excess is sent to a dump load.
