With a rotor diameter of 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) and a peak output spiking over 2,000 watts the Bergey WindPower Excel 1kW 48V 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. The XL1-48MS is configured to charge a 48V battery bank.
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.
Add capacity and reliability to your off-grid system with this powerful yet simple solution.
Bergey’s XL.1 wind turbine is an economical choice for home power systems in low wind speed areas. Rated at 1000 watts (1kW) in ~25mph winds, with peak spike output of ~2000 watts, the XL.1 can provide a significant amount of power for your home system.
Designed for use in battery charging, off-grid power systems, the XL.1 provides excellent performance in low wind speed locations. With a 6.7mph start-up speed, and a 5.6mph cut-in speed, it can produce useful power for more than 6,000 hours a year at a typical site.
