African Wind Power - Wind Turbines


African Wind Power 3.6                                                                                               

Strong as an elephant - not quite as heavy. 

We have the AWP3.6 model available in various voltages. The model number refers to the rotor diameter in meters (11.8 ft), not the machine's maximum power production.

The AWP3.6 has approximately a 1 kilowatt peak output.  It produces more kilowatt hours of energy per rated watt than machines that have comparatively smaller rotor diameters.

 These machines are suited to get the most energy from low to moderate wind sites. They are simple, sturdy and dependable. They are also very affordable.


Direct grid connect system without batteries.  We can now offer a 110v AWP 3.6 machine with an SMA Windy Boy Inverter, along with a controller and diversion load for $5499.97. 

This system is perfect for on-grid applications.  It produces significantly more energy because the inverter allows the generator and the blades to function more efficiently.  This system also eliminates the energy losses of a battery bank, as well as, the expense and maintenance of batteries.

We sell tower kits for the AWP3.6 machines. They are guyed tilt-up pipe towers. You can buy the complete tower or supply your own pipe for the tower and the gin pole. Our kits are based on 4-inch schedule 10 pipe in 21-foot sections. All of the hardware including the couplers, end fittings, rigging and ground anchors are galvanized. Turnbuckles and hoist tackle are also included.

The 43 and 64 foot towers have a guy radius of 21 feet.  The 85 and 106 foot towers have a guy radius of 42 feet. The 127 foot towers have a guy radius of 54 feet.

Height: Without Pipe: With Pipe:
43 feet $1549.97 $1949.97
64 feet $1849.97 $2349.97
85 feet $2349.97 $3099.97
106 feet $2699.97 $3649.97
127 feet $3399.97 $4649.97

Free standing and guyed lattice towers are also available.

Please inquire for prices.


Selecting the correct tower size can make a big difference in energy production.  In general, towers should be installed so that the machine is 30 feet above all obstacles surrounding it, within a 500 foot radius. This is to ensure that the air is free of turbulence. It will make the wind generator run more smoothly and create less stress on its parts. 


Another consideration for selecting tower height is that, the higher the tower, the faster the wind speed. So, if you are unsure about how high you need to go, bigger is better.
