Southwest Windpower (SWWP) old stock closeout. We currently have one 24 volt left at our Renton, WA warhouse and one at our Anchorage, AK store. Primus Windpower is now making the AIR wind turbines and is handling warranties on SWWP units.
Yachting Magazine says, "This model, from Southwest Windpower, USA, supercedes the AirX but spins slower so it’s quieter than its predecessor. [...] The unit has a one-piece cast aluminium fin and casing. The built-in speed and output regulators cut in above 25 knots. It weighs about half as much as its nearest rivals. Mounting is a 50mm (2in) clamp socket. Performance is high, at 89Ah."
Also, the new onboard charge controller frequently checks your batteries state of charge, and shuts off all power output when the batteries reach full charge. The closer your batteries read to the turbine's voltage setting, the more frequently their voltage is checked, eliminating the possibility of any overcharge damage. The AIR's exclusive Auto-brake feature slows the blades to a silent spin as soon as your batteries are charged, extending bearing life and reducing noise. This also means the AIR Breeze works with any size battery bank.
From the manufacturer:
AIR Breeze is trusted by sailors around the world and recommended as the best high-energy output turbine by Yachting Monthly. Its optimized electronic controls deliver energy quietly and efficiently. Extensive third party testing and certification shows more consistent output than the competition. AIR 40 is part of the latest generation of AIR products—the world’s best-selling wind turbines—with more than 135,000 units sold in more than 120 countries.
We recommend AIR Breeze for all small battery-charging applications in coastal areas or offshore: boats, docks and other marine uses. The AIR Breeze is an ideal wind turbine for hybrid systems with solar to offset those cloudy or stormy periods. AIR Breeze is built and backed by the worldwide leader in small wind.
