Wind Turbine Service

The manufacturer of the Raum 1.5kW wind turbine is no longer operational, but it was a beautiful model well suited to this off-grid hybrid wind/solar system.

About this Project

The Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute is one of our favourite repeat clients. In 2012, their facility operated on an off-grid hybrid wind/solar system using a Raum 1.5kW wind turbine. The Raum 1.5kW was made by Raum Energy of Saskatchewan, a company that won an award for innovative technology in 2009.

Although Raum Energy has since disappeared, the Raum 1.5kW was a beautiful unit that we felt was perfectly suited to off-grid applications.
