Battery Storage for Solar PV Systems

The battery storage market to support solar PV systems is set to explode. More and more companies are offering storage solutions claiming that their system is the best and is more efficient than their competitors. As with all technologies that finds its way into mainstream use, please do take care as you enter the battery storage minefield and choosing the wrong system will cost you dearly. It really isn't a level playing field! Do you homework and then do some more. Never, ever sign a contract with a salesman that turns up at your door to demo a system and then has to call his office to answer ANY one of your questions, as clearly the warning bell should be ringing in your ears! Finally, if a discount is offered then walk away as you know you are getting ripped off!

Wind Turbines for Battery Charging Applications

Generate electricity from the wind.  Choosing Wind Turbines, Controllers and DIY Kits

Wind turbines also known as wind generators or wind chargers, generate electricity from the wind. Wind turbines are available in all sorts of shapes and sizes. Small wind turbines produce small amounts of electricity and these are usually used to keep batteries topped up. A good example of a small wind turbine is that found in the marine environment that will keep a boats batteries charged. Large wind turbines can be used to produce electricity that can run hundreds, or even thousands of homes. We supply wind turbines from leading manufacturers and they are guaranteed top quality products and the best prices.

If installing a land based wind turbine it is essential that the best possible site for installation is chosen.   For more information on this subject read our steps to success. Typically, you will need an area with relatively high average wind speeds, with little or no turbulence. To achieve this, the turbine is normally mounted on a high tower well above all obstructions. Tower height ranges from 6 metres to 30 metres or more, depending on the site. If you need advice or help, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
