Craig’s 7 Blade Freedom Wind Turbine & Stars and Stripes Tail

Customer Project: Craig’s 7 Blade Freedom Wind Turbine

Take a look at Craig’s custom painted Missouri Wind and Solar 7 Blade Freedom Wind Turbine Featuring the Raptor Generation 4 (Raptor G4) Blades and the Freedom PMG™.

Craig gave his Freedom Wind Turbine a custom look with a classic green enamel on the Stars & Stripes Wind Turbine Tail and the 7 Blade Hub.  Then he taped off his Raptor G4 Blades and gave each blade tip a coat of black for contrast.  We like the way this wind turbine turned out!

Looks aren’t all that matters, Craig also mentioned that he’s impressed by the non-cogging Freedom PMG and is getting great performance already.

Dave’s Missouri Falcon Mach 5 Wind Turbine

Dave’s Missouri Falcon Mach 5 Wind Turbine from Missouri Wind and Solar

 

Dave N. has done a fantastic job putting together not just his Missouri Falcon Mach 5 wind turbine, but has gone the extra mile with this professional job mounting and labeling his electronics as well as building a nice housing for his battery bank.

 

Dave's Falcon Mach 5 Wind Turbine Blades

Dave put a personal touch on his aluminum falcon blades with a little red at the tip of each blade.

Dave's Missouri Wind and Solar components

Dave did a fantastic job mounting his components and went a step further by clearly labeling everything (saving time later). His batteries are also securely housed in their own well constructed box.

Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom Permanent Magnet Generators™ (PMG)

Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom Permanent Magnet Generators™

Our Newest Technology in the Residential Wind Turbine Market – Completely Manufactured in the USA

 

In late 2013 we announced our newest development in wind power generation – the permanent magnet generator.  In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what makes the Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom PMG™ superior to other products on the market.

What’s new on the outside:

  • Exclusive 100% custom designed polished aluminum exterior casing specifically designed for Missouri Wind and Solar.
  • Extra large cooling fins in the front and rear that allow air to freely pass through the rotor and keep the generator cool.
  • Four mounting points for secure, vibration free mounting.  Delco style alternators only have two.

What’s new on the inside:

  • High grade electrical steel stator core that produces less heat buildup.
  • Twice as much copper as any Delco style stator core for better power generation.
  • Skewed stator core, not slanted less powerful magnets, to reduce cogging to zero!
  • Stainless steel shaft that will not rust.

Take a closer look at all of the improvements as Jeff walks you through the prototype in the video below!

 

Now that the Freedom PMG™ and the Freedom II PMG™ have been on the market for a couple of months, how has it performed?

So easy to turn, a baby can do it!  Seriously, the Freedom and Freedom II PMG™ are extremely easy to turn – they have NO COGGING.  This also means they have a cut-in wind speed of just 6 MPH (that’s 2.68 m/s) to start producing power in very low wind areas.

Charles McCune has shared his Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom II PMG™ output on his wind and solar YouTube channel, McCuneWindandSolar, showing 1 kilowatt output at 25-30 MPH winds.

If you are interested in the Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom and Freedom II PMG™, you can check them out on our website, www.mwands.com, or call one of our sales team members for more information.

The Missouri Wind and Solar 7 Blade Basic Wind Turbine

Here is a very basic turbine installation of our Missouri Wind and Solar 7 Blade Basic Wind Turbine on a 10 foot water pipe.  ACSolarWind wanted to share his wind turbine installation with us and you too, so here it is!  Make sure you check out the other videos on his YouTube channel – they’ve got some very cool robotics projects happening over there.
