how does kestrel provide these solutions?

Kestrel's solutions integrate solar, wind and other technologies to provide the power that meets your energy needs. We primarily use three main sources of power, including:

Micro wind turbines

Wind power - Micro wind turbines

Kestrel manufactures a range of small wind turbines rated at 600W, 800W, 1kW, and 3.5kW. Because of their robust construction and unique engineering, Kestrel turbines have proven to be the product of choice for off-grid, grid-connected and water pumping solutions. The Kestrel range of micro wind turbines are internationally recognised and certified, and have been manufactured in our ISO-certified world-class manufacturing facility since 2006.

Solar power - solar power panels

The sun is an abundant energy source in Southern Africa. At Kestrel, we specialise in the installation of high-quality reliable solar panels. After installation, these solar panels are very easy to operate and maintain. They are a long-lasting, green energy source with no noise pollution. The electrical energy stored in the batteries alongside solar panels can be used to provide power even on cloudy days or after the sun goes down.

Solar energy solutions
Hybrid power solutions

hybrid power

Kestrel's hybrid power solutions comprise of a wind turbine and solar panel hybrid solution, as well as a battery bank and power management solution. All these elements work together to provide a more consistent year-round supply of energy because it is possible to generate output from one resource when the other is not available. For example, during the winter months when solar energy is less readily available, wind energy tends to be more prevalent.
