Description:

The telecommunications industry is a global application that draws power continually. Telecommunication devices are necessary in today's world, however the power used by telecoms devices can be replaced with a renewable source. With the successes of solar power in public area applications, a Kestrel application is being tested. The average device requires, on average, 1’420 kWh per year or 3.9 kWh per day (and only 2.5 kWh per day with reduced traffic). The north of England has an annual average wind speed of 6.5 m/s. In these high wind speeds the e150 has an estimated daily yield 5.1 kWh and the e220 has an estimated yield of 3’000 kWh per year. Both yields meet the average energy requirement of, at least, a single telecommunications device.

Installation Date:

September 2007

Purpose:

Energy source to power a telecommunications device in a public area.

Installation Description:

One Kestrel e220 (48V) wind turbine with a charge controller system regulator, a divert resistor and batteries.

Distributor: Genasys Power Systems Ltd, United Kingdom
