KOHILO Wind turbines are unique in that they condition the wind through a diffuser system not used in traditional turbines, which in turn harnesses the energy more efficiently and increases power production. This elevates the potential for wind turbines drastically, making the clean energy source a reality even in urban environments.
There are no external moving parts. External diffuser fins are stationary and the turbine is within the exoskeleton making the KOHILO the only bird friendly wind turbine.
The Quantum Plug-N-Play Uninterrupted Power System generates between 7,200kWh-14,900kWh annually depending on available wind and sun.
In 2016,the average annual electricity consumption for a U.S. residential utility customer was 10,766 kilowatt hours (kWh), an average of 897 kWh per month. Louisiana had the highest annual electricity consumption at 14,881 kWh per residential customer and Hawaii had the lowest at 6,061 kWh per residential customer.
The “Vortex” will begin to spin at 0.9 MPH and commence electricity production at 2 MPH, considerably less than the cut-in speed of 7-9 MPH of traditional wind turbines. This reduced cut-in speed further diminishes the siting constraints and installation limitations plaguing horizontal axis turbines. The “Vortex” can be installed in any location and does not need to be situated on 50-300 foot towers for optimization. KOHILO’s technology does not need to scale these barriers for optimum performance.
Package 3,4, and 5 utilize a remote monitoring system in the link below.
Kohilo turbines need to be installed approx. 4 feet above obstructions, in some cases installing onto a rooftop is the best option. The base of the system is a 4 foot hexagon which can be mounted outside remotely or acting as the tower base of your system.
What happens to the KOHILO in extreme weather conditions such as strong wind, hail, heavy snow, extreme cold, or desert heat?
Kohilo turbines are built for extreme weather conditions and have survived the strongest typhoon ever recorded with up to 200mph wind in the Philippines.
We strive to create a system that is simple and effective with minimal maintenance, a basic inspection and cleaning once a year will do.
45-60 days depending on the options you choose, this lead time will reduce over time as we ramp up inventory and stock up distributors. In the future you may be dealing directly with one of our distributors for your sales.
Kohilo systems come standard with a 5 year warranty. 7 years if the client has the system installed by an authorized installer and purchases the maintenance package.
The angle is adjustable.
115 Feet away from the system. Loses a lot of generating power
The Kohilo Wind turbines are built for low altitude, low wind, high turbulent areas as we start to generate energy as low as 3 mph versus competitors 8-12 mph, but we do recommend installation in moderate wind speeds.
That is no problem as the Kohilo Wind Turbines can be trailer mounted and installed as non-permanent, or a weighted ground/roof ballast tower, the trailer system also acts as an emergency response system and/or mobile use.
Yes, conventional wind mills are noisy due to their excessive weight applied to the bearing surfaces, 100/1 transmission, internal motors, operation systems, iron core generator and low frequency developed from the rotation of the massive blades. The Kohilo Wind Turbines are designed to be simple yet overwhelmingly effective, Kohilo uses a magnetic assisted bearing system to reduce friction and noise, breakthrough generator design with no iron core, and an isolation system stopping any vibrations from reaching the tower mounts.
The Kohilo Wind Turbines are made out of aircraft aluminum and then powder coated for durability.
The Kohilo wind turbines has several options of mounting which include: ballast, conventional tower, rooftop, grain silo mount, fold out trip pods and trailer mounts for mobile units.
The Kohilo Wind Turbines are designed to change with your family or business needs. Kohilo can increase your output by not changing the infrastructure on your wind turbine unit but simply expanding the capabilities of your existing system. You can upgrade the blades, generators and inverter systems while maintaining the original infrastructure to reduce additional cost but maximize performance.
The turbines are priced competitively while offering higher and more consistent energy yields, realistic mounting options, and creative financing so you never see out of pocket cost. Currently there is a 30% tax rebate in the US for purchase of wind energy from the Federal Government for starters. Some people use a home equity loan and use that capital as an investment. The Kohilo Wind Turbines are structured to get you a faster rate of return on your investment which means more revenue for you, this is the Kohilo retirement plan!
YES, you can customize your Kohilo Wind Turbine with choice of color, graphics or your company logo. The Kohilo Wind Turbines have been described as ” Pieces of functional art” that is pleasing to any environment.
YES, 7 year without purchase of optional Insurance/Maintenance plan, 10 year with purchase of optional Insurance/Maintenance plan, 20 year extended warranty at an additional cost dependent on turbine size and purchase of Insurance/Maintenance plan. Warranty includes manufactures and installation defects, and system integration/operations under normal operating conditions.
The life span is over 35-50 years depending on environmental conditions unlike conventional turbines that have an average life span of only 20 years. Kohilo Wind Turbines last for generations and never need to be shut down for “maintenance”. We just keep producing energy!
Yes, Kohilo is currently working on projects in other countries to provide them with the cleanest, most efficient, and affordable green energy possible.
Yes, we offer multiple battery backup storage systems.
Yes, Kohilo has trained experts that are available by phone, on line and in person.
