None of these wind turbines
have charge controllers inside the PMA (Permanent Magnet Alternator). Eagles philosophy
is to keep all the electronics easily accessible at ground level and as close
to the battery or grid feeder as possible. Raising and lowering turbines is not
a fun job so you'll want to put as few components as possible on the top of your
tower. Having a charge controller 40 feet in the air is very inconvenient to adjust,
monitor and service to say the least! Do it the right way and use the load diverting
"DUMP LOAD" philosophy! Please call if you need help with this.
EAGLE ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS & LARGE
NEED MORE POWER? - Install
A Mini Wind Farm
Most people have an inherent pre-conceived notion
that a property should have only ONE wind turbine.
It's puzzling to see people
putting in 10 solar panels and ONLY one wind turbine and then wondering why the
wind turbine puts out less power than their 10 solar panels. If you put in 10
Eagle wind generators and ONLY one solar panel then you would be wondering why
the solar panel puts out less power. Having multiple wind turbines is not only
a practical solution but an absolute necessity for creating low cost electrical
energy. The inherent misconception of having only ONE wind turbine per property
is a myth that has to be actively talked about and challenged.
Eagle's have broken a major pricing barrier and for the first time it makes
sense to put up a mini wind farm instead of one mega wind turbine. Many people
have decided to install as many as 20 to 30 Eagles for the same price of installing
one big 10KW system. Mini wind farm advantages are many.
Wind Farm Advantages:
- More total power per dollar spent
- Self installation. No cranes or heavy equipment needed
affordability. Start small and add more turbines as you can afford them
dependability with multiple turbines running
- Very weather proof!
Snow and ice create no major problems in small wind turbines
- No high
wind speed worries. Small turbines are extremely durable in storms!
building permits required in many areas for small or low level turbines
conspicuous than a giant 80 foot tall tower. Very neighbor friendly!
Add ONLY as many turbines as you need to run your household
- Use 20'
pipes with 4 feet cemented into the ground. Cheap and simple mounts
foot high mounts on 1.5" schedule #80 pipe do not require guy wires
to service. Simply slide turbine down to ground level right on the pipe. EASY!
- Can be placed closer to property lines. Great for small properties (Fall
- No expensive tower that can actually cost more than the
wind turbine itself
- Mini wind farms blend in with scenery and have
a high acceptance rate from neighbors and community
(You need to be
in an area that has good wind near ground level like high deserts, coastal or
mountain passes) There are plenty of areas with good wind near or close to
ground level. There is much talk of having very tall towers in the wind turbine
industry but NOT every area requires this type of strategy. At the mfg's r facility
for instance, it's difficult to remain standing on very windy days. There are
millions of sites all over the world that have good low level wind characteristics
just perfect for mini wind farms.
PMA's are very polarity sensitive. Make sure you connect
positive to positive when making your final battery connection!!! If you see sparks
coming from the connector at the time of electrical hook up you may have the positive
lead going to negative side of the battery. This may cause fires and burn out
the coils in your PMA immediately.
Please note that these blades are very sharp and can cause severe injury if handled
improperly. Treat these blades with the same respect you would have for a sharp
These blade sets can turn at well over 2000 RPM on a windy day
and can cause severe bodily injury when they are spinning. Use extreme caution!
Never mount or work on a wind turbine on a windy day. Never place a turbine in
any area that can be accessed by inexperienced persons or children. We assume
no liability for ANY injuries caused by these products.
