Tony Pearson and contractors of Future Energy are very experienced with installations of wind and solar throughout NZ (20 years of experience) and we have a wide range of wind turbines,(click on images below and/or go to Links for more information) that will suit whatever power needs you have. They have been selected to suit New Zealand conditions and are very robust and warranted to winds over 200 km per hour, well over NZ wind speeds. They are quiet and easy to maintain. They have a design life of 25 years but with a small over haul significantly longer. They are therefore a very good property investment. We provide a range of domestic size from 3 kW to 10 kW. On grid equipment costs (turbine, mast and inverter) range between $24,000 - $75,000 respectively. The average house requires a 3.5kW turbine. We also supply a wide range of other sizes including smaller and larger where required.
Wind turbines require a concrete foundation that we can instal although it is often cheaper to get a local contractor or do yourself. We supply all the specifications and the foundation kit is included in the turbine purchase. We will undertake the turbine installation and costs depend on where you are and lengths of cable runs etc.
COMBINED WIND AND SOLAR SYSTEM
In many situations the optimum solution may be a combined wind and solar which evens out the power so you have a consistent supply of energy without large peaks and troughs which often happens with single generation system. Research I have conducted on Matiu-Somes Island with an installation of off grid wind and solar (published) shows the clear benefit of combining wind and solar. The benefits being: a smaller wind turbine, solar array and battery bank. Also, less reliance on diesel or mains back-up.
We provide both fully off grid systems and grid connected systems that will continue to power your property if mains power fails. This requires a set of batteries and inverter but does give financial advantages of making better use of your own power in addition to the security of keeping power available. We provide a range of batteries including new technology lithium and aqualine (saline). If you require batteries I am happy to discuss the relative costs and benefits of the technologies. I keep very up to date with battery research and development.

Windspot 3.5 kW Wind Turbine
Windspot 3.5 kW
: Wind turbine is a robust, small scale wind turbine, with low maintenance suitable for medium to large house or telecommunication sites in either on grid, maintained on grid and off grid installations. Windspot wind turbines are manufactured in Spain and are high quality wind turbine that control their speed by a patented variable pitch control mechanism. Continues generating and warranted to wind speeds of over 200 kph.
Rutland 1803 Furlmatic Wind Turbine
Rutland 1803 Furlmatic
wind turbines are 600W robust and quiet small wind generators with furling device to protect themselves in high winds. Ideal for batches or top up to solar or specialist situations such as monitoring equipment, telecommunications, Aids to Navigation, lighting etc.
Rutland 910-4 Furlmatic Wind Turbine
Rutland 910-4 Furlmatic
wind turbines are 100W suitable for land based installations with furling mechanism to protect it at high winds. Rutland 910 wind turbines come in 12 or 24V versions with regulators that can combine with some solar input. Suitable for specialist installations that do not require much power and is particularly suited as a support to Solar.
Osiris 10kW Wind Turbine
wind turbines are medium sized wind turbines for very high-consumption households, light industry Farms, telecommunication towers, rural electrification, etc.
At locations with 5 – 8 m/s average wind speed the 10KW Osiris wind turbine can produce 50,000 kWhrs per year.
Osiris is a high quality robust wind turbine that has been carefully designed to maximise the power output at lower wind speeds and so produces the same energy as many much larger capacity wind turbines produce. It is built using modern manufacturing and quality assurance techniques. It is certified by third parties to international standards and has many safety factors that protect the wind turbine in high winds including active, passive and manual pitch control and electric braking. The Osiris wind turbine is designed to withstand height winds and has withstood typhoon conditions without having to drop the turbine.
Windspot 1.5 kW Wind Turbine
Windspot 1.5 kW :
wind turbine suitable for a small house or telecommunication site or as support for a solar 24 or 48V off grid installation. Windspot wind turbines are manufactured in Spain and they are a high quality robust wind turbine that controls its speed by a patented variable pitch control mechanism. Continues generating to windspeeds of over 200 kph
