This is the type of wind charger they use on yachts

Can do with a layer of paint but is in working condition.

When I tested it , it went as high as 42 volts.
The lower the speed the lower the volts.

Will be ideal to charge 12 volt batteries if used with charge controller.

No controller included, this is only the chargers.
I understand a new one is in the region of about R7k

My price R2,500.00 which will include free courier anywhere in South Africa.

You can PM me if you R interested. First come first serve.

In installed it onto the house's roof, but I have concrete slab roof, thus even though it was mounted on engine mountings, the sounds of the charger still resonates through the concrete and you can hear it when it is turning.

So a Phocos controller will be adequate?

I dont think so. You will have to use a controller that can take 48v input.

I am also not sure if wind charger and solar panels works on the same controllers. Maybe ChrisF can shed some light on this

AFAIK he never used a controller. He put it up and measured the voltage and took it off the same day.

Wind is not a problem on the coast. Thinking that it might be an alternate charging source to the panels, especially at night for my outside lights which run all night. My current system copes, but with extra energy I can increase the brightness of the existing lamps.

exactly what i wanted to use it for Andy. Unfortunately I have nowhere else to put it besides on the roof.

Think it will work lekker on its own roof and I was planning on using it with a normal mmpt charger like the Victron which can handle up to 72 volts.

I have plenty place to put it away from the house so that any noises / vibrations don't disturb our sleep, just a case of running a cable.

OK then, decision time ..... I'll take it and look at controllers later. Just hold back on the courier, there are some more smaller items that I would like to order from the shop, so we can make one parcel. Will contact you for payment and shipping arrangements. :winkx:
