2  AIR wind turbines in SummerIn  the Autumn
Result By utilising a combined wind and solar energy system we have been able to maximise the wind power for the winter, and the solar power for the summer with the best of both resources at other times. This system provides 230VAC pure sinewave power to run the metal halide light sources for the fibre-optic lighting within the Skyspace and the timers. In the event of a prolonged period of NO WIND - NO SUN a portable engine generator can be coupled to the system to charge the batteries.
Specials Ther are Skyspaces in Arizona, Japan, and now Kielder, Northumberland. The Kielder Skyspace is the most remote from a power source and WINSUND were able to provide a cost-effective Alternative Energy System using the natural resources available at the site.

Visit the Skyspace (in person) - a new visual experience (- and admire the wind and solar energy system that makes it possible)
