Xzeres 10Kw

Farm & Small Commercial Property

The Xzeres 10Kw wind turbine is designed for performance reliability and value, with a marine classed turbine appropriate for the unforgiving coastal areas. This robust turbine requires minimal maintenance typically every two and a half years. The production from this turbine will provide enough energy for most electrical heating for a single domestic property, or sufficient electricity for two or more properties, which have other forms of heating. As with the Evance turbine the installation of this turbine is simple not requiring a crane for erection.

XZERES Wind manufactures wind energy systems built from the ground up for performance, reliability and value. The XZERES 442SR is capable of generating 1,583 kWh per month at an average wind speed of 12 mph, and features a simple design with minimal moving parts to reduce maintenance and provides for quiet operation.
This machine gets its name from its large swept area of 442 sq ft. Name plate capacity of a wind turbine tells one very little of its efficiency or energy production potential, whereas swept area is directly related to energy production. By focusing on performance and reliability, our systems produce the lowest lifetime cost of energy, which yields the best return on your investment.
The XZERES Turbine Controller has an on-board diagnostics system which records performance metrics and is web enabled and Wi-Fi accessible from a home computer or handheld device.
A reliable, efficient source of renewable energy, the XZERES 442SR solutions cover a broad range of applications, from residential, commercial, remote energy supply, community power, island electrification, telecommunications, hybrid, and specialty solutions.
