Our Newest Technology in the Residential Wind Turbine Market – Completely Manufactured in the USA
In late 2013 we announced our newest development in wind power generation – the permanent magnet generator. In this post, we’ll take a closer look at what makes the Missouri Wind and Solar Freedom PMG™ superior to other products on the market.
What’s new on the outside:
Exclusive 100% custom designed polished aluminum exterior casing specifically designed for Missouri Wind and Solar.
Extra large cooling fins in the front and rear that allow air to freely pass through the rotor and keep the generator cool.
Four mounting points for secure, vibration free mounting. Delco style alternators only have two.
What’s new on the inside:
High grade electrical steel stator core that produces less heat buildup.
Twice as much copper as any Delco style stator core for better power generation.
Skewed stator core, not slanted less powerful magnets, to reduce cogging to zero!
Stainless steel shaft that will not rust.
Take a closer look at all of the improvements as Jeff walks you through the prototype in the video below!
Now that the Freedom PMG™ and the Freedom II PMG™ have been on the market for a couple of months, how has it performed?
So easy to turn, a baby can do it! Seriously, the Freedom and Freedom II PMG™ are extremely easy to turn – they have NO COGGING. This also means they have a cut-in wind speed of just 6 MPH (that’s 2.68 m/s) to start producing power in very low wind areas.
