Perfect for a wind only system or basic hybrid system, this LE-300 Wind Turbine Standard Kit contains everything you need (except batteries & cables) to get up and running as quickly as possible. Based on our most popular wind turbine, the LE-300 from Leading Edge, it also includes the DL-300 diversion charge controller and a run/stop switch to be used when you want to stop the turbine for maintenance (not to be used in high winds).
The wind turbine is connected directly to the batteries and the DL-300 charge controller is also connected to the batteries. When the batteries are fully charged, the controller diverts excess power generated by the wind turbine into the DL-300's resistor, dissipating the power as heat.
Mount the turbine on a standard scaffold pole (48-50mm outer diameter). We recommend the Guyed Tower Kit, everything you need (guy wires, earth anchors, foundation plate etc) except for the pole which you source locally.
