500w house wind turbine in Philippines

off-grid Philippines 500w house wind turbine

 

Objectives

· Protect natural state of the land, no visible electrical wires

· To reduce high cost of electricity and to go off-grid

· To create a visible demonstration project

Project Requirements

· Less costly solution than running electric lines to the site

· Adequate energy production using Philippines s wind resources

Site Details

· Average annual wind speed: 7 m/s (13.4 mph)

· Install date: March 2005

Solution

· 500W house wind turbine

· All in one controller

· Each on 6 m towers

· 19 meters of cabling for each turbine

Benefits

· Hummer 500W wind turbine produced 1,460kWh energy (annual average)

· House fully powered by wind generator system

· Completely reduces dependence on utility company

· Public demonstration of wind
