PowerSpout turbines are tailor made products which match your unique resource and personal requirements. We do sell direct to customers who are keen D.I.Y.er's but please note that you will need to pay for system design/installation support.

It is often cheaper to buy through a dealer as they can often offer discounted global freight and their knowledge and experience will help you create a successful system and avoid costly mistakes.

Regardless of whether you buy directly from us or from a dealer you will need to collect your site data, assess your energy needs and complete a calculation. If you need help doing this please read our getting started guide.
