Southwest Windpower "Air 30"
Air 30, 12V.......$739.00
The Air 30 is the best choice for reliable battery-charging in very high wind areas (above 15mph average annual wind speed). The Air 30 has lower energy production at lower average wind speeds than either the AIR Breeze or the AIR 40. It has a bare aluminum finish for use in non-corrosive environments, so it is not suitable for marine use. Rated power: 400W at 28mph (12.5 m/s). CSA Listed for the US and Canada.
5-year limited warranty.
The AIR 30 turbine is recommended for use in small battery-charging applications such as small cabins, RVs, camping, garden lighting, or in educational/hobby setups. It is also an ideal wind turbine for hybrid systems that combine the use of solar and wind power. Not for use in marine environments.
All units weigh 13lbs, have a 46" rotor diameter (11.5 ft² swept area) and mount on a 1.5" Schedule 40 steel pipe (1 7/8" [48mm] outer diameter). Made in the USA.
AIR Tower Kits
AIR tilt-up tower kits are available as hardware kits (not including the tower pipe) in 27' (8.1m) and 45' (13.5m) heights, and in a 29' (8.8m) EZ Tower™ kit that includes the pipe for the tower. All towers use a 4-guy-wire set-up, and are assembled on the ground with the wind generator and tilted up into place.
The 27' and 45' tower kits come with all the hardware necessary to install a tower, except guy-wire anchors, pipe, and concrete. All parts bolt or clamp together and no welding is required. Purchase 1-7/8" steel tubing from a local chain link fence supplier (for up to 90mph at 27', or 70mph at 45'), or use 1.5" Sch 40 Galvanized water pipe (1-7/8" OD and up to 120mph at 27' and 90mph at 45'), to build the tower. These tower kits include a simple elbow/tee for its basethat, when combined with a short length of pipe, eliminates the need for a concrete pad, a base plate and a swivel for the base of the tower. Two people are required to erect one of these towers, but no winches or vehicles are needed.
The 29' EZ Tower™ kit comes with all the parts you'll need, including Galvanized tubing, cable and hardware. This tower uses lightweight tubing while providing plenty of strength to withstand winds up to 110mph. Two people can easily erect the EZ Tower™ without winches or vehicles. The EZ Tower™ includes a simple yet effective tower base and anchoring system which eliminates the need for a concrete pad. The kit comes with guy-wire anchors that are driven into the ground (depending on the soil conditions, concrete may be necessary for proper guy anchoring). Ships via UPS anywhere in one 74' (1.9m) box weighing 80lbs.
AIR towers are PE stamped and approved for the California buy-down program. Contact us for wet seal stamps (additional cost).
The AIR Marine Tower is the easiest way to mount your AIR Breeze Marine turbine on a boat. It's simple to install on wood or fiberglass decks. The 9' (2.7m) white powder-coated aluminum mast has an outside diameter of 1.9" (48mm) and two 9' (2.7m) long fully-adjustable stays with a 1' (25.4mm) outer diameter. The Hardware Kit contains stainless-steel hardware with self-locking nuts, and vibration mounts to minimize sound transmission. Designed to withstand hurricane-force winds. Order the Mast and hardware kit separately.
Roof mounts are also available and include vibration isolators, wall brace clamps and a safety leash, but do not include pole or lag screws. Caution should be exercised with roof mounts as wind turbines can transmit vibration into a building, causing stress on the structure, and any occupants inside. Mounting on wood-framed living structures is not recommended.
