The all-new Air Breeze. Quieter, more efficient, and precision engineered to deliver more energy at lower wind speeds than any other wind generator in its class. The Air Breeze is the latest generation of Air — with more than 100,000 sold in 120 countries — the world’s most popular small wind generator Small wind systems are used for individual homes and businesses that are off-grid and grid-tie. A small off-grid wind system consists of a wind turbine, which generates electrical power, a battery bank that stores the power, and a Xantrex inverter. In many locations hybrid systems that include solar panels and a generator are used to ensure a “round-the-clock” electricity supply. A grid-tie wind system may be as simple as a wind turbine and a Xantrex grid-tie inverter. Depending on the amount of power being used by the household, electricity is either fed to or accepted from the utility. The wind turbine is placed on a tower at a height of up to 100 feet where the rotor blades are exposed to faster and less turbulent wind. This enables the turbine to produce the maximum amount of power. Usually, two or three blades are mounted on a shaft connected to the turbine to form a rotor. Wind blowing over the blades causes them to lift and rotate. This rotation is used to spin a shaft inside a generator that converts the motion into electricity for use in the house or business. Wind is a completely renewable fuel source and produces no health risks and no air pollution.
