The hy5 is a 5kW horizontal axis, small-scale wind turbine. It has been specifically designed to produce energy at a wide range of wind speeds, and operate reliably in the harshest of conditions. There are currently over 100 hy5s in operation in the U.K. and Europe.
With high energy yield, production at low wind speeds, and fast payback times, the hy5 is the ideal turbine for energy users in rural and urban settings. MCS certification ensures that all energy produced is applicable for Feed-in Tariff payment.
