- Thank you,
"I recently found EcoDirect & have been extremely happy with their service. They have had all the PV modules, inverters, optimizers and accessories I needed. They provide excellent customer service & turn orders around very quickly. I have switched to EcoDirect for all my parts & materials orders. Highly recommended."

- Zeno
"I wanted to let you know I am very pleased with the service you gave & the quality & condition of the solar panels I received from EcoDirect. I will purchase more items in the future from EcoDirect and will be sure to tell others about your fine operation."

"Thanks EcoDirect! My solar system is up and running; waiting for City and San Diego Gas & Electric inspections this week; so far so good!"

"I enjoyed ordering what I needed. It was simple and fast, no issues what so ever. If I need something else and its at a good price, I will defiantly order from here again. Also the shipping is at a good price."

- Simon
My shipment arrived on time, as predicted. Very, very good performance by EcoDirect. What more could you ask for from an online material supplier? Looks like the quantity from Quick Mount is spot on & the rails were bundled safely. EcoDirect will be my recommended source to my friends & neighbors for solar.

KidWind Basic Wind Experiment Kit - Classroom Pack

The Basic Wind Experiment Kit is a great introduction to wind energy science and engineering concepts. This is a robust, experimentally rich turbine kit that is appropriate for middle and high school students.

Explore wind energy affordably and easily. This kit, one of our most popular, allows young scientists to test a variety of blade designs, generate electricity (0.5 –3 V range), and lift weights. The Basic Wind Experiment Kit has all the materials you need to get started understanding wind power. Great for classrooms, as well as individual science fair projects.

Classroom Pack
The classroom pack includes materials for eight groups of 2 to 4 students each. Each group independently assembles hubs and blade sets. To evaluate designs, students use one of three teacher-built “test stations” that include a tower, base, and generator.

Experimentally Rich

  • Test electricity production and weightlifting
  • Explore torque and energy transfers
  • Measure electrical and mechanical power
  • Experiment with wind turbine blade design

Plastic parts made from recycled plastic

Maximum blade diameter 36 in. (with provided materials)
Maximum number of blades 12
Expected power output 0-1 Watts
Number of different nacelles 2
Can it power the water pump? No (maybe, with a really strong wind)
How much table or floor space is needed? 18 in. diameter circle
Can this be used for electrical AND mechanical experiments? Yes
