|The Rhino Rotor is a versatile 1 kW watt turbine ideal for use with in a variety of applications including:
The Rhino Rotor is best suited for regions with average wind speeds of 4 m/s and higher, and in those wind regimes it will produce enough power to supply most large homes or schools.
For example, a home in an area with 5 m/s average winds could run the following appliances off of a Rhino Rotor-based system:

|Rated Output||1000 watts output in 12.5 m/s winds|
|Rated Voltage||24v/48v or custom by special order|
|Peak Output||1.5kw peaks above wind speeds of 12.5 m/s|
|Expected Monthly Output||80 – 120 kwh assuming average winds between 4.5 and 6 m/s|
|Overspeed Protection||Furling tail activates at 12.5 m/s winds, which allows the turbine to protect itself from high winds while continuing to produce power|
|Excess Power Handling||When batteries are full, excess power can be usefully diverted to a water or air heater|
