There are no external moving parts. External diffuser fins are stationary and the turbine is within the exoskeleton making the KOHILO the only bird friendly wind turbine.
KOHILO Wind turbines are unique in that they condition the wind through a diffuser system not used in traditional turbines, which in turn harnesses the energy more efficiently and increases power production. This elevates the potential for wind turbines drastically, making the clean energy source a reality even in urban environments.
Yes. The Quantum Plug-N-Play Uninterrupted Power System generates between 7,200kWh-14,900kWh annually depending on available wind and sun. In 2016,the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,766 kilowatt hours (kWh), an average of 897 kWh per month. Louisiana had the highest annual electricity consumption at 14,881 kWh per residential customer
The “Vortex” will begin to spin at 0.9 MPH and commence electricity production at 2 MPH, considerably less than the cut-in speed of 7-9 MPH of traditional wind turbines. This reduced cut-in speed further diminishes the siting constraints and installation limitations plaguing horizontal axis turbines. The “Vortex” can be installed in any location and does
Kohilo turbines need to be installed approx. 4 feet above obstructions, in some cases installing onto a rooftop is the best option. The base of the system is a 4 foot hexagon which can be mounted outside remotely or acting as the tower base of your system.
What happens to a KOHILO in extreme weather conditions such as strong wind, hail, heavy snow, extreme cold, or desert heat?
Kohilo turbines are built for extreme weather conditions and have survived the strongest typhoon ever recorded with up to 200mph wind in the Philippines.
We strive to create a system that is simple and effective with minimal maintenance, a basic inspection and cleaning once a year will do.
45-60 days depending on the options you choose, this lead time will reduce over time as we ramp up inventory and stock up distributors. In the future you may be dealing directly with one of our distributors for your sales.
