The LE-450 is the latest marine wind turbine from Leading Edge, designed and manufactured in the UK. It’s the most powerful small wind generator with a 1m diameter rotor available on the market, delivering exceptional power in every day winds.

Key Features:

High power outputs - 105W at 8m/s (15.5 knots), 450W max – meaning it’s a great power source in the cruising winds of 8 - 15 knots

Excellent value for money - it delivers the highest power output for the lowest cost

Easy to install due to its small size

Quiet - Quieter than the competition thanks to the tried and tested WhispowerTM blade design

This turbine is an ideal choice for use on yachts thanks to its marine quality finish and small size but it’s equally suited for land-based applications, such as telecommunications, LED lighting systems and road signage applications. 

The LE-450 comes with a 2 year warranty and is available in 12V, 24V or 48V versions.

Please note the LE-450 is not suitable for locations where the winds regularly gust to over 18m/s (40mph).
