Abstract: A wind driven power generator is designed for mobile applications and locates the generator in a power housing at the base of the unit on an adjustable mounting arrangement. A lightweight high strength hollow column is supported in the power housing and supports a wind driven turbine at the opposite end of the column. A drive shaft within the column transfers power from the turbine to the generator and causes rotation thereof. Preferably the column provides the only support of the turbine and the column is not supported by guide wires.
