One of the most difficult challenges of the installation of a wind turbine is assembling and erecting a tower. Fortunately, the engineers at Southwest Windpower have designed towers that are easy and safe to install. A number of heights for each product are available. Keep in mind, the larger the turbine the more complex the tower design. None of the towers require any kind of welding or machining and only the largest towers may require concrete. Most designs can be installed within a few hours to a day. All work with Southwest Windpower towers is done on the ground. You will NEVER need to climb a tower.
All of Southwest Windpowers tower kits include everything you need with the exception of:
To keep your costs low and to consider site variables, these components should be purchased locally. When selecting the materials for the construction of your tower, please consider the following:
Pipe Material: For most conditions, we recommend a schedule 40 pipe material. This offers a wall thickness of .125 which is strong enough to resist most wind conditions. If you are using fence pipe material, make sure you ask for SS40. If you live in an environment were your winds will never exceed 80 mph (140 km) then we suggest using a thinner wall material such as a Schedule 20. In conduit material, this is called SS20.
