Southwest Windpower WHISPER Tower Kits for the Whisper 100 - 30ft
This is the shortest tilt up tower kit Southwest Windpower makes for the Whisper 100. We recommend the tallest tower possible since the minimum tower height for a turbine should get the turbine hub at least 30' above anything within a 300' radius. Getting the turbine higher is ALWAYS better since the wind speed is ALWAYS faster the higher we measure it! Turbine output is dependant on wind speed, get your turbine into the fuel it uses (Wind!) Turbines that are installed to low experience unwanted turbulance and wasted output potential. Don't be fooled into thinking that a short tower or rooftop installation will produce ideal results!
Southwest Windpower offers tilt up tower kits that are easy and safe to install. These kits don't require welding or machining – you just need to obtain 2.5" steel pipe material and power wires. Anchors are sold separately or are made on-site out of concrete.
