Whisper 175 Wind Turbine
Re-engineered for greater reliability
and superior performance
The largest wind turbine in our
family delivers over 3200 watts for large power requirements.
With 10 years of operational history, the Whisper 175 has proven
itself to be quiet and reliable. Over 800 Whisper 175's have been
installed providing a dependable power supply for people around
The Whisper 175 has double the blade area of the
Whisper H-80 resulting in double the energy at 12 mph (5.4 m/s)
If you have a large energy demand, this is
the machine for you. Depending on the wind speed average, the
Whisper 175 will provide enough energy to operate your entire

* High voltage model available
The Whisper 175 is used in countless applications
from Village Power projects in the Caribbean to mountain top telecommunication
sites in Washington State.
With the High voltage option, the Whisper 175 can
be located more than 2 miles (3.2 km) from the batteries.
The Whisper 175 now includes several upgrades that
offer more value, greater reliability and improved performance:
The upgraded yaw shaft is now 50% larger
for greater strength.
The alternator now features three main
for smoother operation.
The Hub incorporates new support
straps for improved blade stability.
EZ-WireTM Universal Charge Controller
Standard with every Whisper 175 wind turbine, the
EZ-Wire Charge controller is designed to control current from
wind, solar and hydro charging sources to prevent battery overcharging.
Simplify your system with one controller capable of regulating
as much as 200 amps. Excess power is diverted through a resistor
bank that can be used for area heating.
- Bright LED display for easy monitoring of batteries
and performance of wind and PV or hydro sources.
- Input device circuit breaker
- Wind turbine stop switch
- Output for DC loads
- 200 amp resistor bank for area heating
- Voltage adjustable for various battery types
- Large terminal lugs for easy wiring
Patented Angle Governor
Exclusive to the Whisper is the ANGLE-FURLTM, an
incredibly effective, Whisper quiet, method of protecting the
Whisper 175 in high winds. Unlike other wind turbines that lose
as much as 80% of their output when furled, the ANGLE-FURLTM maintains
maximum output in all winds.
