The Renewegy team made installing a wind turbine a wonderful experience with three planned features. First, the concrete foundations can be excavated and poured in a day. The foundation’s reinforcing steel cage can be built prior to the installation and can be easily placed in the space upon excavation. Often, a local concrete installer can do the foundation work with under the instruction of Renewegy. Second, the entire turbine system can be placed on a single flatbed trailer that does not require any special permits. This allows a turbine system to be shipped anywhere in the US in about a week’s time. Finally, the tip up tower design eliminates the need for a crane and keeps labor costs low. Two installers, their equipment, and a day’s time are all that Renewegy needs once the concrete foundation is cured.

After a minimum of a 28 day cure, the tower can be assembled to the foundation and hydraulically erected. A 1.0 HP 230VAC electric motor is used to energize the hydraulic power supply to raise and lower the tower assembly.
