The new Bergey Excel 5 is ideal for smaller and more efficient homes, farms and small businesses. Its extra large rotor and ultra-low cut-in wind speed give it exceptional performance, out producing all other turbines in its class. More energy means greater savings and a quicker payback.
The Excel 5 features shorter versions of the same blades used on the Excel 10, which incorporate the proprietary low noise BW-7 airfoil and Bergey’s unique pultrusion construction. No other small wind turbine can match the strength of the Excel 5 blades that Bergey achieves in a fixed pitch, no maintenance, rotor.
The alternator is also completely new and incorporates a specially optimized stator design and neo magnets to achieve a peak efficiency of 92% and a cut-in wind speed of only 4.5 mph.
The Excel 5 is conservatively rated and it will actually produce as much as 70% of the energy of the Excel 10.
At a suggested retail price of $21,995 it offers excellent value.
30 years ago Bergey pioneered the radically-simple “three moving parts design” that has proven to provide the best reliability, service life, and value of all of the hundreds of competitive designs that have come and gone in that time.
A small wind turbine is a big investment and Bergey clearly the wise choice.
