Portable Plug And Play Wind Towers Make Off Grid Power Easy!

Categories: Wind Power

So you've been thinking about setting up wind power with your solar setup for a while now, and you're just not sure which way to go about it. You've heard that wind power is easier and cheaper than solar, but where to begin?  A large tower makes for a complex installation, and things can get pricey in a hurry.  Derek Grassman and Kohilo Wind products have come up with the greatest small-scale power device we have seen to date!

Imagine you want to set up camp in the middle of the Sahara Desert.  One of these 4x4x4 boxes dropped with a parachute to your site would leave you with 12kwh of battery power to get started, and only four hours time to set up the tower and turbine to start charging your battery bank.

 

A look inside...

It comes with 3KW of power generation with a mild breeze, and up to 6kw of power generation available with it's stackable turbine technology!  

The turbines are designed on a floating magnetic bearing that is silent and frictionless, so it will do more than anything we've seen for its size, and when it comes to big power in a small package with plug-and-play built in inverters and breakers, what better way to get your off-grid setup in gear!?!?

Cost:  Under $30,000.00 with commercial delivery inside the U.S.  To discuss for your setup, send a little blurb about your needs, location and phone contact information to:  Offgridjourney@gmail.com, and someone will call you to discuss.

KOHILO Quantum

The “QUANTUM” is a powerful and complete clean energy system consisting of a 3-kilowatt turbine atop a 12 foot tower. The entire system breaks down into its base, creating a safe and convenient shipping capsule with all electronics pre-installed at KOHILO’s manufacturing facility, ensuring the highest standards of quality control. The system may be grid-tied allowing for net metered applications and because of the exoskeleton encased turbines, cost-effective system expansion may be realized by stacking additional turbines.

Invented by the founder of KOHILO, the “VORTEX” wind turbine yields the lowest Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCOE) and highest Capacity Factor in the wind energy market. This increase in power production is made possible by the employment of a diffuser system that stabilizes turbulent airflow. These precision diffusers channel wind into the core of the “VORTEX” turbine thereby increasing the velocity of this harvested wind by compressing a large volume of flow into a small channel; this channel directs airflow perfectly into the blades of the turbine. Consequently, the large diffuser channels create a head pressure yielding a strong, constant airflow.
