Harnessing Wind Turbine Power

When considering wind turbine power for your property, professional installation is crucial. PRSL have the credibility and experience to install and handle permitting. Once in place, our regular maintenance ensures the longevity of your system.

Selecting the right location is essential. The PRSL team consider wind resource factors, and New Zealand’s complex terrain. For sizing, residential wind turbines range from 400 watts to 20 kilowatts, we’ll ensure that you have the appropriate size based on your energy needs and location or any future plans for scale.

If you are looking to bring consistency to your power supply you might want to look at combining wind and solar technologies. Hybrid systems enhance reliability, optimise power production, and ensure energy availability when it matters most. A Hybrid system gets around the issue of low wind or low sun hours causing production fluctuations during seasonal change. 

Harnessing Microhydropower for Your Property

If you have a consistent water source flowing through your land, you might consider constructing a small hydropower system to generate electricity. 

Microhydropower represents a straightforward and reliable form of alternative renewable energy that you can utilise on your property to typically produce up to 100 kilowatts of power. 

Most of the hydropower systems adopted by home owners, rural lifestylers and farms, fall into the category of microhydropower systems. Even a 10-kilowatt microhydropower system can supply sufficient energy for a large home, an off-the-grid batch or lifestyle block.

To create a microhydropower system, you’ll need a turbine, pump, or waterwheel. These components work together to convert the kinetic energy from flowing water into rotational energy, which is then transformed into electricity to power your property.
