Product Overview

This marine grade wind turbine will produce up to 400-Watt of power at 28 MPH. If the wind dies down the turbine will continue to produce power in winds as low as 5.6 MPH. Mounts on any 1.5 in. Schedule 40 pipe. Ideal for cottages, cabins, work sites and other places where power from the electric company is too expensive or not available. Power from the wind generator can be used with an inverter to run small TVs, DVD, players, phones, lights, radios, power tools, laptops, fans and electric razors. it has a marine grade coating to withstand harsh environments. A wind charge controller is included with the generator to get the ideal charging current from your wind turbine to your 12-Volt battery or bank of batteries. The body is made from cast aluminum and is safe for high wind speeds, up to 110 MPH. The assembly is easy and is only 5 parts, the body, a nose cone and 3 blades. Blade diameter: 46 in.

Will it work on a nature's 3500 watt solar wind generator with a 300 watt wind turbine max?

Asked by Ed March 27, 2021

Answer

No, this is not going to work with the Nature's generator. Please call Nature Power tech support at 1800-588-0590 for any more questions.

will it still charge the battery while im using the the power from the inverter hooked to the bat...

Asked by milo February 19, 2021

Answer

Yes, Normally DC loads(inverter), operate on voltages between 11.3V and 15V. The voltage reading from the battery while being charged is 13-14.2V, the inverter will operate normally while battery is getting charged. Please feel free to contact Nature Power Tech support at 1800-588-0590 for any more questions.

We live in windy Kansas. Could this produce enough power to maintain an electric fence charger?

Asked by Kansasgirl February 16, 2021

Answers

Absolutely! Start speed is just 6.7mph and the full 400w is at 28mph day and night. It will keep the 12v battery charged. There is also a combo package with the wind generator and solar panel so you can get even more power.

At 12mph it will still produce about 150-180 watts. Plenty to charge the 12v battery. So based on what you run off the battery will determine if that is enough.

Is a dump load required to prevent run away when batteries are fully charged

Asked by ppaanther June 17, 2020
1
Answer

No. the MPPT charge controller will take care of preventing over charge to your 12V battery or battery bank. No dump load is needed. The charge controller included with the turbine is programmed with set values as cut off and cut in voltage to prevent over charge. Please feel free to contact Nature Power tech support line at 1800-588-0590 for any more questions or concerns.

Please don't believe things the person that calls himself president says. Most is just gibberish. There are lots of people who have had windmills long before he called himself that that have not contracted cancer. SMH

What can be used with a wind turbine

Can I use this to power a 30 amp system

Asked by James51 May 26, 2018

Answers

When you say 30A system, it sounds like you are referring to a household 120V AC system with 30A circuit. This generator puts out DC for a nominal 12V battery type system. It needs to be connected to a battery. If you want to get 120V AC out of it, you will need to connect that battery to an inverter. It is advertised to put out 70KWH per month at 12mph windspeed day and night (that is rare, BTW). That works out to a power output of 94 watt-hours per day. You can run some fairly large appliances off a charged battery with a powerful inverter, but only for a short time. If the total power demand for the 120VAC circuit is less than 94 watt-hours per day, and the wind blows at least 12mph for the same 24 hours, and if this unit works as advertised, then you should be able to run that circuit with just the input from the wind generator.

i have 2 other wind turbines and like the performance and the value of the Nature Power turbine.
I like the watt meter. The green LED light is a little too bright. Good value for the money.

Response from Nature PowerFeb 27, 2021
Hi Tim, Sorry you are having problems with your wind turbine. Please reach out to us so we can assist you in troubleshooting. As long as you have it above the tree line which is usually at least 20 feet up, the start up speed is much lower than 20 miles per hour. Contact us at cs@rdkproducts.com and we will be happy to help you get it working correcting for you. Thank you. Nature Power Tech Support Team NATUREPOWER

This is our second N-Power. First one performed well for years and has only been replaced before an extended out of country sail. The new one was also less expensive, always nice.

I have had this installed for about 1 month. The only reason I would not give this generator 5 stars is that I just haven't had it exposed to the elements long enough to determine reliability. Other than that, I am happy with it, especially at the price compared to many that cost 3 times as much. As the manual says, don't expect the blades to start turning freely until fully broken in, or in any gentle breeze less than 7 mph. All small wind gens need a steady strong breeze to produce useable power. Most locations in suburban areas won't have these conditions often. I intend to do a permanent installation on my boat but for now, I installed it temporarily on a 12 foot pole at my house in a corner that seems to get a lot of gusty winds. It has been working for the few hours this month when we got breezy weather. The charge controller works fine, showing output up to 60W on the display ( 5A at 12V on a separate multimeter), connected to a discharged 12V battery, during wind gusts I estimated to be about 15mph at most. A lot of people who own other types of wind generators on sailboats complain that they are noisy or make vibration. That doesn't seem to be a problem with this one. In operation during wind gusts it is so quiet that I really couldn't notice it unless I stand right under it and listen closely, and there was only a very slight vibration to be felt in the mounting pole. Electrical connections are very simple, just connect the three red wires from the generator to the three red wires on the controller. The other two wires, red and black, are the 12 to 14 volt outputs to a 12V battery.

I'm impressed with the enginuity,the material is great and they way the controller almost completely stops the turbine when fully charged rather than just disconnecting the power internally in the controller so that way it saves the life of the turbine. . .

At first it was confusing since all the wires were black, but after talking to the technicians, we got the turbine wired and ready to go. We definitely like the meter box that shows how many volts are going into the system. It's been up for just over a week and we are happy with it.
