This Sunset picture was taken 1/2 mile away from the Jacobs wind generator located at Kansas Wind Power. Click on picture for larger view. Tower is 75 feet high. The blade diameter is 13.5 feet. The very heavy, slow speed, direct drive generator is rated: 32-40 volts DC, 65 amps. Unit weighs about 550 lbs.    © 1978 Kansas Wind Power 

 

Water Heating Elements  12 - 24 - 48 volt    
Best Price about 1/3 cost   

Great for surplus power when batteries are nearly full. Use one or more of these elements as a diversion load with Xantrex C35, C40, C60 or TriStar 45, 60 controllers. They fit most standard water heaters with screw-in elements. An adapter is used for the square flange type element. 150 watt hours will raise 1 gallon of water about 60º. Elements extend about 7" beyond the 1" male pipe threads on 1.5" hex head. Order enough elements with a total current draw greater than your charging system’s maximum output, but no more than 75% maximum amp rating of controller.

The dual 12/24 element has two separate 12 volt,  29 amp, 0.48 Ohm elements. It can be wired for 29 amps or 58 amps at 14 volts or 29 amps at 28 volts.

D380 12/24 volt Dual 29 amp, 0.48 Ohms 3 lbs $140         Limited  Special  $69  
                    or 2 for
$118 ($59 each)     3  for $147 ($49 each)


The dual 24/48 volt element has two separate 24 volt, 22 amp, 1.24 Ohm elements. It can be wired for 22 or 44 amps at 28 volts or 22 amps at 56 volts.
D381 24/48 volt Dual 22 amp, 1.24 Ohms 3 lbs $140              Limited  Special  $69

Home Electric Systems for on or off grid

Make your own  home electricity with alternative energy Wind Generators and Solar Electric Modules (also called Photovoltaic or PV). The PV modules generate electricity when exposed to light, have extremely long life, no moving parts and almost no maintenance. Installing a home energy system is within the grasp of many people. You can start small and add on as needed. Many homes in the USA and world wide are already using wind and solar electricity. They are statements to reducing pollution, waste, dependence on fossil fuels and increasing independence and self-reliance.

Make your home, cabin, farm, camper or RV better and be more self-reliant. There is always a risk of natural disasters and conflicts. Be prepared with sources of electricity, water, food, fuel, etc. A disruption in commerce, no matter the cause, will catch many people dependent on others to bail them out. Become more prepared so you will be in a position to help others and not be a burden to your community.

Basic Engine Generator System

Some systems start out with just battery, inverter and engine generator. The inverter quietly powers the house. An engine generator is used periodically to recharge battery or power loads to large for inverter. Solar modules or wind generator can be added to help charge battery and reduce engine generator run time. A gasoline, propane or diesel generator can also be used for backup power for on grid house.

A home alternate energy system might include:

1000 watt wind turbine generator on tilt-up tower
eight 140 watt PV modules on a tracker mount
Power boosting Charge controller (MPPT)
TriMetric Battery Monitor Meter (battery “fuel gauge”)
Deep cycle batteries with battery Desulfator
Inverter to convert battery power into AC electricity
DC circuit breakers
DC loads such as water pump, lights, fans, refrigerator (or propane refrigerator)


This system could provide 3.7 kilowatt hours per day from wind in a 10 mph average wind area. Solar could provide another 2-6 KWH/day depending on climate. A small system of 1 or 2 PV Modules is commonly used for RVs, campers, water pumping or as a starter system. An engine powered generator can be used as a backup to power large loads and to help charge battery during low wind and solar periods. Solar or Wood fired water heaters are a great way to provide hot water and not burden your energy system. The TriMetric Battery Monitor is a good meter to monitor the battery bank status for home, cabin, RV, boats and electric vehicles.

Small systems can be 12 volts.  Medium or large systems are 24 or 48 volt.

We encourage people to be more energy efficient so their system can be smaller, cost less and reduce their cost of living from now on.
