eMarine Solar/Wind Hybrid System

Installed as of April/May 2013...

*eMarine Solar/Wind Hybrid package: consisting of:

    - 2 Kyocera 140W Solar panels (280W Total)

    - Air Breeze 200W Wind Generator

    - eMarines's e20 Wind Turbine & Solar PV Control Panel

    - 3 inch crossbar mounting kit, & install kit

One Solar Panel is installed, as well as the Self-Leveling Radar Mount & Garmin 24HD Radar Dome (needs to be fine-tuned & wired up).  I had a marine welder make brackets for that and a mount for my Wind Generator - which is behind it - Aft Center Top of Arch. 

After quite a bit of research, we have selected the Southwest Windpower AIR BREEZE Marine 12V Wind Turbine.


They are recommended by Practical Sailor & Yachting Magazines, affordably priced, well-proven, and have a Lifetime Warranty!
