Leading Edge's small wind turbines and our off-grid wind and solar hybrid systems are used extensively for SCADA systems (RTU, Telemetry & Data Acquisition), where power supply from the grid is not possible. They provide a cost-effective remote power solution, that can be deployed in the remotest of locations.
Our British-built wind turbines are considered to be the most rugged and reliable small wind turbines in their class, and we combine these with ultra-high efficiency monocrystalline DC solar panels.
If you're looking for a fit and forget off-grid power solution, then our PowerBox is the answer for telemetry applications. The PowerBox is pre-configured to your specifications and ready-to-go – once on-site, it can be installed, in less than an hour. As everything fits neatly into a single, pallet-sized box, the PowerBox is easily transported from our base in the UK.
Leading Edge has worked with Severn Trent Water and Wessex Water to power off-grid telemetry equipment. In the case of Wessex Water, the requirement was for interconnection between their remote water pumping and reservoir sites in Dorset. The off-grid power solution specified and supplied by Leading Edge Turbines was an LE-300 small wind turbine was mounted on top of a tower and along with solar PV panels, it provided power for the microwave communications network.

In the case of Severn Trent, the Leading Edge PowerBox is installed on a storage reservoir, providing essential power for off-grid equipment measuring water levels. It took only one hour to install, unfold the 2 x 140W solar panels and bolt the Leading Edge LE-300 wind turbine to the mast and it was ready to power DC equipment.
