Commercial Lighting Options for On- or Off-Grid Applications
Whether you're on the grid or off, Southwest Windpower has wind energy solutions to power your lighting and building needs.
On-Grid Turbines Mounted on New or Retrofitted Light Poles
Single or multiple units of our Skystream 3.7 model work in tandem with your electric utility to power your building's needs. Our scalable light pole systems offset electric costs and create a visible renewable energy presence. Skystream wind turbines provide electricity directly to your facility. You'll use the energy generated by Skystream first and only pull from the electric grid during times when your needs go beyond what your turbines are generating. Skystream turbines can be mounted on shared infrastructure such as parking lot light towers to closely match the appearance of existing lighting. Whether you're retrofitting existing towers or you're designing for new construction, we work with you to create an integrated light and wind turbine system that perfectly meets your needs. For more about commercial solutions, see our Business/Retail page. The diagram below shows how to mount a Skystream on a new or retrofitted light pole.
Off-Grid Turbines to Power All Your Lighting Needs
Southwest Windpower also has AIR X and AIR Breeze small wind turbines that can be used alone or in conjunction with your solar energy system to keep batteries powered in off-grid areas. AIR turbines are the best-selling small wind generators in the world. AIR Breeze produces more energy in lower winds and is so quiet, it blends into background sounds such as wind. AIR X performs better in higher winds and has a smart controller to regulate blade rotation. AIR turbines can be easily mounted on 27-, 29- or 45-foot towers with no concrete or winching needed. They also can be mounted on a roof.
Hybrid Wind and Solar Lighting for Parks and Walking Trails
Creating a pathway lighting system with wind and solar energy allows you to provide adequate illumination for safety, while still maintaining the undisturbed look of natural areas. These self-contained lighting systems combine our compact AIR Breeze turbine and a small solar cell to charge an integrated battery bank that runs each light pole separately. The hybrid system installs without lengthy trenching or connecting to the grid.
