50 kilowatt Vertical Axis Wind Turbine

General Specifications – General Turbine Design Features

The 50 kW Wind Turbine from Affordable wind Turbines offers innovation through a completely new Permanent Magnet Direct Drive generator, proprietary rotor blades system the innovative design offered by Affordable Wind turbines has half the parts of a conventional geared Turbine. Allowing for simplified maintenance and extreme reliability and thus increase in efficiency. A 50kW wind turbine produces enough energy to power several US homes. These are comercial turbines but are also used as community-sized wind turbine that produces the right amount of power for residential development, farms, and small businesses. Predominantly, however, 50kW units are often used in agricultural and light industrial applications. It has also been used for years in remote village applications, where diesel power systems supply electricity for a small grid.
