Wind turbines harness the power of the wind and use it to generate electricity. About 40 per cent of all wind energy in Europe blows over the UK, making it an ideal country for domestic turbines (known as micro-wind or small-wind turbines). A typical system in an exposed site can easily generate more power than your lights and electrical appliances use.
How exactly do wind turbines work?
Wind turbines use large blades to catch the wind. When the wind blows, the blades are forced round, driving a turbine which generates electricity. The stronger the wind, the more electricity produced.
There are two types of domestic-sized wind turbine:
- Pole mounted: these are free standing and are erected in a suitably exposed position.
- Building mounted: these are smaller than mast mounted systems and can be installed on the roof of a home where there is a suitable wind resource

ECO-WORTHY 24 Volts 1KW Wind Solar Panel System: 1pc 12V/24V 400 Watt Wind Turbine Generator + 6pcs 12V 100 Watt Polycrystalline Solar Panel + Y Branch MC4 Connectors + 1 pair 16ft Solar Cable
Perfect for 24v (2*12v) Battery, these units can be placed on a house boat with the turbine generator. You can use wind and solar simultaneously to charge battery bank.
The new style controller is more efficient and fully automatic, you don’t need to set any parameters.
The cable adapter is used to connect the solar panels with the controller, you need to get other cables (14awg suggested) to connect the turbine with the controller.
