Whisper 500 High Voltage Wind Generator & EZ Wire
SouthWest Windpower Whisper 500 Wind Turbine
Whisper, a name with more than 10 years of experience in the field, has been re-engineered and launched under the Southwest Windpower family of wind turbines.
The Whisper has an all-new look featuring a cast aluminum frame and smooth, quiet operation of the patented "angle-governor" furling design.
Whisper 500 - Serious power production for an entire home.
The 3000-watt rated turbine will deliver in excess of 500 KWH per month in a 12 mph (5.2 m/s) wind. This machine has a 14-foot (4.26m) rotor diameter providing 175 sq. ft. of swept area. The Whisper 500 has been redesigned, incorporating a stronger, larger yaw shaft, new blade stabilizer straps and a third spindle bearing for increased reliability.
The Whisper 500 features a fiberglass and structural foam core blade for smooth, high efficiency operation and low wind start-up. It also incorporates the patented "angle governor" design for quiet operation in high winds. The Whisper 500 is an excellent machine for village power projects, farms, ranches, back-up power and remote homes with large energy demands
Patented Angle Governor: Exclusive to the Whisper, the side furling Angle Governor protects the turbine in high winds by turning the alternator and blades out of the wind, reducing its exposure. Unlike other wind turbines that lose as much as 80% of their output when furled, the Angle Governor allows the Whisper to achieve maximum output in any wind.

I had a Whisper 500 installed 2 years ago and it has been nothing but a nightmare since. Six months ...
