Southwest Windpower "Air 40"
Air 30, 12V.......$839.00
Southwest Windpower has replaced their Air Breeze Land turbines with the new AIR 40 model. With upgraded circuit boards, the AIR 40 is more advanced and designed to handle extreme weather conditions. The improved programming in these circuit boards also allows the AIR 40 to produce more energy, more consistently in a wider range of wind conditions. The Air 40 is more quiet than the AIR 30, and though technically it has a lower watt rating (AIR 40 is rated at 160 watts and AIR 30 is rated at 400 watts), the AIR 40 on AVERAGE produces more energy than the AIR 30, due to it's improved design and lower start up speed. AIR 40 comes with a limited lifetime warranty.
The AIR 40 turbine is recommended for use in small battery-charging applications: remote homes, telecom, industry, lighting and more. The AIR 40 is an ideal wind turbine for hybrid systems with solar to offset those cloudy or wintery periods. Not for use in marine environments.
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.
