Kestrel, a Proudly South African product, had developed a reputation across the globe for providing leading edge small wind turbine alternative energy solutions. Kestrel is a subsidiary of Eveready (Pty) Ltd, South Africa’s icon battery manufacturer brand with a proud 70 year old history of providing portable power solutions in South Africa.
The combination of the Kestrel wind turbine technology and Eveready’s ISO certified manufacturing and technical expertise has achieved recognition as Proudly South African Innovator of the Year and Best Exporter. Eveready Kestrel provides small wind turbine solutions in the 600w, 800w, 1kW and 3kW range. Its robust construction and unique engineering makes it the product of choice for telecommunications, off grid, grid connect and water pumping solutions.
The e230i is a distinctive 3 blade turbine that has a low start up torque, increasing its efficiency. The axial flux permanent magnet brushless alternator is powered by an optimised three blade rotor, with patented pitch control. The e230i maintains rated output in excess wind speeds, optimising the potential power output and energy yield. The e230i is used predominantly on farms and rural installations for power where there is no grid connection available.
