The W2. Wind + Storage = Energy Security.
Weaver Wind Energy's battery-based 2 kW wind system integrates seamlessly with existing solar to allow uninterrupted, on- or off-grid operation of both energy sources.
Wind turbines aren't just for rural homes. Any place with a reasonable wind resource and where point-of-use generation is desired is a potential site.
A standard W2 system consists of: Our 2 kW turbine and controller, 100' tilt-over tower, wind charge controller, battery bank, and grid-interactive inverter. Tower-mounted PV panels are optional to create a 3 or 4 kW hybrid system.
Integration with Solar
If you have existing grid-connected solar, skip the tower-mounted PV option yet still create a hybrid system by adding wind. Wind power integrates easily giving you a system with the benefits of energy storage and dual generating sources. Your W2 and existing PV connect directly to a battery bank sized to your specifications. Our grid-interactive inverter allows your system to operate independently, selling excess energy back to the grid when, and if, available.
How much energy the W2 can produce in a year depends on your wind resource. With a modest wind resource on its standard 100' tower, our W2 turbine can generate 1000 - 2000 kWh annually and potentially much more if located in a wind-rich area. Combined with 1 or 2 kW of solar in our hybrid system, the typical yield increases to 3000 - 4000 kWh annually.
There are a number of options available. A typical system consists of: W2 turbine; 100' tilt-over tower; 4 kW grid-interactive inverter; 10 kWh of AGM battery storage. Cost: $58,500. There are lower price options available. Contact us for a detailed quote.
Options: 1 - 2 kW of tower-mounted PV; 8 kW grid-interactive inverter; power electronics for connection to pre-existing PV; Lithium-ion battery. Additional options include custom turbine colors, tail vane, and blade markings. Call us!
