Bergey Windpower


Bergey Windpower is the oldest and most experienced manufacturer of residential-sized wind turbines in the world. Thirty years ago Bergey pioneered the radically-simple “Bergey design” that has proven to provide the best reliability, performance, service life, and value of all of the hundreds of competitive products that have come and gone in that time. With only three moving parts and no scheduled maintenance necessary, the Bergey 10 kW has compiled a service record that no other wind turbine can match. They back it up with the longest warranty in the industry.

Bergey Excel 1 kW

With a rotor diameter of 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) and a peak output spiking over 2,000 watts the Excel 1 is a perfect system upgrade for current owners of solar-only off-grid systems along with light telecom and other high reliability off grid applications. Following the same simple design as the larger Excel turbines, the Excel 1 has been a favorite tool for experienced renewable energy practitioners for over a decade. The recently updated version incorporates the acclaimed American made MidNite Solar Classic 250 multi-voltage charge controller. This allows the unit to charge 12V-48V nominal battery banks.  A higher voltage stator reduces the required conductor sizing for wire runs making installation more affordable, and a newly incorporated disconnect box makes inspections as simple as a flick of a switch. Marine grade corrosion protection has also been added as a standard feature. BWC offers tilt-up tower solutions in heights ranging from 60’ – 100’.
