These complete packages include the 1 KW Bergey Exel 1 wind turbine, MidNite Solar Classic 250 Charge Controller, MidNite Solar Turbine Control Box and a Bergey Tilt-Up Guyed Tower. Everything you’ll need to add wind power to your off grid solar system! An optional Dump Load Add-On Package is also available to help control turbine noise when your battery is full.
With a rotor diameter of 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) and a peak output spiking over 2,000 watts the Excel 1 is a perfect system upgrade for current owners of solar-only off-grid systems along with light telecom and other high reliability off grid applications. Following the same simple design as the larger Excel turbines, the Excel 1 has been a favorite tool for experienced renewable energy practitioners for over a decade.
The recently updated version incorporates the acclaimed American made MidNite Solar Classic 250 multi-voltage charge controller. This allows the unit to charge 24V or 48V nominal battery banks. A higher voltage stator reduces the required conductor sizing for wire runs making installation more affordable, and a newly incorporated disconnect box makes inspections as simple as a flick of a switch.
Marine grade corrosion protection has also been added as a standard feature. Tilt-up tower solutions in heights ranging from 60’ – 100’ are included in these packages. Stainless cable versions are also available for enhanced corrosion protection in marine sites. See the customer supplied tower requirements for proprietary solutions.
The Bergey Excel turbine can free-wheel without damaging the turbine, however it can become noisy when free wheeling. If turbine noise is a consideration, Iron Edison recommends the optional Dump Load Add-On Package. This package consists of a Tri-Star Dump Load Controller and Diversion Load.
Add capacity and reliability to your off-grid system with this powerful yet simple solution.
Over a century ago, Thomas Edison found a battery design that he considered to be nearly perfect. Today, Iron Edison is proud to offer an updated version of this incredible design that is specifically manufactured for Renewable Energy systems.
Iron Edison now offers a full line of solar panels, charge controllers, inverters and more!
