Leading Edge LE-450 Horizontal Axis Wind Turbine





Add to Cart

From Leading Edge Turbines, the LE-450 is the most powerful small wind turbine with a 1m rotor, able to provide meaningful power levels at everyday wind speeds of 5-8m/s (11-18mph), yet is tough and robust enough to withstand storm force winds.

The LE-450 is a quiet, powerful and lightweight 450W wind turbine for battery charging & grid connected applications. Fully optimised for marine conditions, the LE-450 is ideal for supplementing the power supply on-board a sailboat or yacht and provide energy when solar PV panels are unable to operate effectively – during Winter or overnight.

Manufactured in the UK, the LE-450 wind turbine is extremely easy to integrate with solar panels to create small scale off-grid renewable energy systems for powering security, telecommunications, lighting, signage and telemetry applications.
