Wind energy is one of the most popular energy technologies, with the UK being the
windiest country in Europe. Harnessing the natural power of the wind is essential
to tackle global warming.
Envirotek are UK retailer of low cost, high quality vertical axis wind turbines (
They can provide a useful power source for small load applications including energy
efficient lighting in remote areas. Being small in size, they are suitable to be

Strong magnets on the base hold the Micro Vawt in place even in stormy conditions.
Overall it is an extremely tough storm proof vertical axis wind turbine VAWT.
permanent magnet alternator encapsulated inside lower compartment. Bridge diodes
included producing DC. No controller required - the Micro Vawt simply stops charging
when your battery is full.
The installation of the unit has been made simple. All Cables, mounting bars with
a strong magnetic base are included.
The Micro Vawt is ideal for Rvs, caravans and boats. With the turbine constantly
charging the batteries, you can enjoy piece of mind knowing your electric supply
is always available. Start your engine from a fully charged battery and set sail
The Micro Vawt wind turbine is a two blade Savonius type VAWT turbine. It is a safe,
quiet and environmentally friendly alternative to conventional propeller type turbines.
It has a relative low output, designed to maintain battery charge in leisure vehicles
and remote installations. Unlike solar panels and with the right conditions, the
vertical axis rotor can give a 24 hour "Top-Up" charge. No more lugging heavy batteries
back and forth.
How Does a Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Work?
The turbine rotates in a vertical plane driving a permanent magnet alternator. Although
VAWT turbines are not as efficient as horizontal, they are virtually silent in operation
and visually unobtrusive.
