400W Small Wind Turbine [Giveaway]


To be considered for this random giveaway, leave a comment below through the end of Thursday, May 6, 2010.*

After writing about Sam's Club's installation of 17 Skystream turbines in California, we were approached by the company with an opportunity to give away a 400W wind generator.  We jumped at the chance given this could help out one of our readers.  For informational purposes, the micro turbine is available for purchase online at Sam's Club, but at the end of this giveaway, one random commenter will be chosen to receive one for free. 

Keep in mind that the generator doesn't come with a tower kit and will need to be set up, but it has a value of $596.00 and will get you well on your way toward generating on-site electricity.  Here are the specs:

  • Carbon fiber composite blades for low wind noise;
  • Lightweight cast aluminum body;
  • Easy installation;
  • Weatherproof;
  • Great for 12V battery charging, remote power, and backup power;
  • Fully integrated regulator automatically shuts down when batteries are charged to minimize wear; and
  • Max power up to 400 watts or 27 amps in ideal conditions.  

The small wind turbine has a three year warranty and seems ideal for tiny homes, cabin retreats, or urban locations where small wind is allowed. 

*To participate in this giveaway contest, leave a comment here by midnight MST on Thursday, May 6, 2010.  One comment per person; use a valid email; available only in the United States.  By leaving a comment, you agree to the terms and conditions relating to giveaways on Jetson Green.

    Very cool! I was surprised to see the story on Sams Club using wind power. I know Walmart has made in-roads to being more green but this caught me off guard.

    I’ve been eyeballing wind power for a bit, my one issue has always been noise. I’ve seen a few of the smaller wind generators and all have been pretty “buzzy whirly” sounding (boat installations). This one looks really nice by spec and design.

    Whoever wins needs to post up their experience here! I know I would be more than willing to share data and opinions.

    Good to see you guys promoting wind power so heavily. We’d love a chance to win the turbine..keep fighting the good fight.

  • Robb

    I think micro turbines are incredibly interesting. The decreased cost would seem to allow multiple turbine configurations in various locations, which could be a huge advantage for areas traditionally not utilized for wind power.

  • jon knight

    I’ve been showing that piece around to folks – it surprised nearly every one of them that Sams was installing wind power. Now I guess I have to send them all back here to try to get one!

    Or… I could get one…

    I know exactly how I’d use this turbine, on my Tiny Free House.

    This is a tiny house I’ve been slowly cobbling together that’s made mostly from shipping pallets. It measures only 7×12 feet but will have a kitchen, bath, living space, storage, and will sleep 3. The core concept I’m exploring with the project is the true value of a house.

    Shouldn’t the true value of a home be measured by the happiness and security it brings instead of its size and cost?

    In the end the house will cost nothing but my effort. Any money spent on the house will be offset by selling free stuff I’ve been finding on craigslist.

    This turbine would become the core to an off-grid power system that will power the house. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. :-)

    I am a student at Cascadia Community College in Bothell, WA. My area of studies is in Environmental Technology and Sustainable Practices. If I were awarded the wind turbine generator, I would donate it to my school’s program in ETSP. This would immensely enrich and enhance our program through having a live wind turbine which we could set up and study in our campus wetlands. The wetlands are jointly owned by the campus of Cascadia CC and UW – Bothell. By having an actual working and learning tool such as this, we could also develop whole courses study around this individual energy producing machine. Please consider me and the Cascadia Community College Environmental Technology and Sustainable Practices program for your random giveaway of the Wind Turbine Generator.

    Sometimes urban, older multi-unit homes get left out of the wind and solar and retrofit opportunities, but my 60s era 4-plex apartment has a willing owner and is west facing. It is a perfect location for a small wind unit with it’s flat roof and territorial view which allows lots of wind and sun to hit the building. I’d love to run a laptop with a wireless connection on this unit. Thanks.

Last fall we completed a permaculture design certification course, are becoming better observers but taking it slow doing what we can to make changes; making better choices in caring for people, earth. We know we are still tipping the scales on the more consumption side but our goal is to equalize. It will be cause for celebration if we can bring our selves to tipping the scale, at least some days, towards redistributing the surplus.

  • Linda

    As a “lady home builder”, women ask me all the time about when it will be possible to reduce the cost of heating, cooling, and other home needs b a device that will ‘fit in their backyard’. For this reason, I have considered offering mini turbines spotted through a subdivision that homeowners could ‘share’. I don’t know how many 2000 SF homes could be serviced in that manner – but I suspect that on a cost effective basis, homeowners might ‘share’ the energy reductions, but need to pay an additional amount to the service providers. There is also the question of ‘looks’. I always wonder why people complain about cell phone towers, etc – when they have been living with telephone and electrical poles for more than 100 years. I can understand not wanting to have a wind turbine SITE next to your back yard – since it takes a lot of anchoring space. I wonder, however, if there isn’t some alternative to this problem – the rotating cylinders, for example, that are wind turbines. Another alternative might be to make the anchoring space so ATTRACTIVE that it was considered a great area for family and kids to gather – landscaping, mixed use areas for baseball, soccer, picnics, etc. The immediate problem that comes to mind is the liablity factor of the tower failing and injuring someone. As the energy crunch starts effecting people as the current recession has done, I think there will be second thoughts: Do I want electricity or go back to kerosene laps and wood fires? There’s not a doubt what I’ll choose: I can’t live without hot water – and I’m not about to start heating it on a cast iron stove.

    Here in Ohio, there is a real push to get 300MW of our energy grid off of sustainable energy. Instead of blanketing our farm land with solar panels and/or wind mills, these small mills are just the thing. The solar panel needs could be easily addressed by using the flat roofs of warehouses and factories…why till up our farm land!

    I have a small hobby farm (more like a livestock animal refuge) 18 miles from my house, totally off grid. I just recently had a small cabin shell put up and am planning on finishing it within the next two months. This wind turbine is a fantastic alternative for electric power for my farm! Presently, we have to run a generator when we need power, but don’t care for the noise or having to use gasoline, so this would be a fantastic addition! We take in unwanted livestock from the Rutherford Co shelter and needed a place to sleep and hang out to spend more time with the critters. Not having power is a real problem, and even if I don’t win, I’m going to look into this product here in middle Tennessee!

    My name is Oona…like charlie Chaplin’s wife. I am Basque, French American and married to a Senegalese fisherman. We are directors of a non-for-profit ecological cultural arts exchange camp based in the north of Senegal near Saint Louis (where there is a lot of wind btw!) We are in the process of building the first sustainable camp in Senegal where the traditional african life style is mixed with ultra modern eco-architecture in order to show the african governments that THIS IS WHAT THEY SHOULD INVEST IN!!! Africa is still bare and full of open land that is ripe to build new green cities based on their traditions (using adobe, wells for water and solar panels OR little wind mills!!) Senegal has 700 km of coastline with loads of wind each day yet there are no wind mills. I think this would be a great opportunity to show the government that there are people ready to modernize Senegal as long as the government participates in funding sustainable and ecological development.
    I think my association would be a perfect place for your windmill because we are very small and local, I am fully integrated into the Senegalese population through my husband and child and this wouldn’t be just a private wind mill….people would come to see it from all over the country and I think it will inspire a lot of businesses who might see an economic opportunity in investing in wind power!
    Thanks for your time. I hope to be in touch soon!

    Great stuff. Thanks for passing this on!
    For what it’s worth, my wife and I are putting our hearts and souls into building a 750 acre self-sufficient community in Tennessee. I’ve been working on putting in a micro-hydroelectric generator on our seasonal 50′ waterfall. The next project I have lined up is a wind generator.

    I offer a 10% rebate on the purchase of land here for those who put in renewable energy or rain water collection system. So, although I don’t have a following like you do, I think placement in the Village might offer some marketing synergy for Sam’s.

    So far, we’ve sold 14 lots (more in the pipeline) and all buyers want to live sustainably off-grid. This would be a great opportunity to prove the viability of wind here on the Cumberland Plateau and sell some more systems once a prototype is in place.

    what a wonderful opportunity to own a wind mill. I live in the San Luis Valley where the wind blows strong and this windmill would make a great example for our solar garden community we have been working on here in the valley.

Wind is such a great addition to solar here and this size windmill would be great for so many families living here with no electricity at all.

    A small wind turbine would really work well in Montana where we have allot of BIG, PREMIUM GRADE WIND! This “new” energy source has been around since the BIG SKY COUNTRY was formed but it remains an untapped resource for most private citizens. Harnessing the Montana wind and developing the power grid to share this source with other states is a #1 priority. Starting small with a 400 watt turbine would set a good example for others in the area.

    I am planning a small home using a shipping container, from ECOPOD. I plan to be totally off the grid with your wind turbine. Beautiful industrial design, I want several to make a sculptural installation that powers my home. Do they come in Orange?

    Just the thing for our mountain cabin.

    Winning this would be the first step after recovery and coming out from the big “C” and building a sustainable home after over five years of spiritual retreat to overcome this illness using only natural means and self shaman healing. (The doctor said I would live only six months if I didn’t listen to his Western Medicine ideas.) Hopefully, thereafter I could become a peer advocate using the home as a meeting place.

    I love the product and love the fact that you are getting the word out about alternative energy sources. Thanks!

    This seems like the perfect size for a small cabin.

    I am doing my homework, studying, and planning to be the first,as far as I can tell,to build a totally awesome and stylish small modern green home in Akron Ohio. It is going to be constructed as much as possible out of salvaged and reclaimed material AND power self sufficient. A Skystream would be icing on the cake!

    just saw this great system today,would be great to bring it to my country Bhutan, since it is mountainous and reaching electricity to these remote places is always expensive, would be a great way of showing alternative power sources to my fellow country men and the government.would be nice to have one. cross my finger and pray to god.

    I think I missed the deadline but I’m looking forward to being able to harness some wind power at our off grid ranch

    I have never seen so many responses to anything you all have put up!! It’s a hit!! Maybe someone else will give something green and energy producing (or saving) away!! Cash for Caulkers just may be a hit as well!
