Advanced Small Wind Turbine
The Evance R9000 small wind turbine is the result of years of dedicated research and development, based on engineering experience of designing big wind turbines. Specifically designed to capture more energy at lower wind speeds makes the R9000 one of the most efficient 5kW turbines available. The R9000 includes state-of-the-art technologies, such as the patented blade pitch system and a highly efficient generator, which converts up to 96% of the energy captured into electricity in on and off grid applications. The R9000 belongs to the ‘next generation’ of small wind turbines, offering class leading quality, performance and reliability.
- Delivers maximum energy yield.
- Generates power at low wind speeds & continues running at high wind speeds.
- Outstanding durability – minimal maintenance.
- Reliability backed by millions of operating hours in the field.
- Low noise and visual impact.
- Conforms to IEC 61400-2 international standard.
The efficient and reliable Evance R9000 is already enabling homeowners, farmers and businesses around the World reduce energy bills and carbon footprint. Renewable energy is key to our low-carbon energy future, as well as diversifying energy sources. Today wind power continues to gain ground as a profitable and effective energy source. Evance Wind is at the heart of this energy revolution, supporting
homeowners, farmers, businesses and organisations around the World, to become independent green energy producers and reduce their bills and C02 emissions. The Evance R9000 already has several European accreditations, including the UK MCS certification so eligible for Feed-in Tariffs.
