LE-1000 Mistral, 1100 W Mini Wind Turbine

A small but quite powerful and visually pleasing mini wind turbine, Mistral weighs only 22 kgs and can be easily mounted on a simple guyed tower. (A slightly more expensive free-standing tower is also available.) Heavy-duty design throughout, steel and powder-coated, this turbine is built to last and has only two moving parts. Designed and manufactured in the U. K., low carbon footprint from manufacturing to deployment (not an air-delivered and CO2-heavy piece of scrap from the Far East). Compared with other mini wind turbine models, LE-1000 Mistral boasts a very low price. Compared with solar PV, the LE-1000 Mistral comes in at just $1.85 per Watt installed
