Pecos’ PW85 Wind Turbine
The PW85 is an 85kW distributed wind turbine for behind-the-meter (onsite) and distribution-level (community-serving or community wind) power generation. Our design leverages an induction generator, a gearbox, and an extensive portfolio of commercially-off-the-shelf components for high reliability and serviceability. Pecos’ cost advantage is founded on two key advantages, optimization for low wind speeds and our patented tilt-up tower and installation system.
Designed for Low Wind Speed
The PW85 is optimized for low wind speeds; these wind speeds are very common and allow us to impact a much greater geography. The low wind speed design also boosts capacity factor (the utilization rate of the turbine’s generating capacity) and increase energy production.
Tilt-up Tower and Installation System
The PW85 uses a patented tilt-up tower and installation system to drastically reduce balance of station costs through
containerized transportation, ground based assembly, and crane-free installation. Pecos Wind Power’s mobile installation and service team ensures the high quality and consistency for each installation.
