Solar and Wind Hybrid Power Systems - Remote / Off-Grid Projects
Solar Wind Hybrid System Kiama
This 2kW solar wind hybrid system installed on Saddleback Mountain in Kiama NSW features a Bergey 1kW wind turbine on a 10m tower and a 1kW solar array on a ground mount solar tracking frame.
The solar tracker features an electrically driven linear actuator to ensure that the array is always pointing at the brightest spot in the sky maximising energy output.
Kiama's high average wind speeds makes this site particularly suitable for wind energy production. Our customer has witnessed outputs from the turbine in excess of 50 Amps (i.e >1500W!).
