Eighty percent of the landmass on this planet
has winds of less than 12.5 mph where harvesting
the energy of the wind was not previously possible.
The average wind speed in the world is 3 meters
per second or 6.7 miles per hour.
Traditional turbine designs serve only 20% of the world. Our wind turbine will serve over 60% of the world. There are over 2 billion people on earth that have access to no electricity whatsoever; that will soon change. Access to electrical power will become nearly universal the world over. The energy future belongs to wind.
Imagine personal electricity generators that are 1/3 the size and price and will produce electricity at substantially lower wind speeds than traditional turbine designs. No towers or propellers are required.
Output is independent of wind direction. The turbine drives an AC generator that feeds an electronic power converter which converts the power to DC and then back again to AC at a constant frequency and voltage, regardless of the turbine rpm.
The units will be in a class by themselves, available to small business, ranches, farms, urban homes and other applications not allowing towers or unsafe propellers. The turbines accommodate most geographies including some areas of the country with average wind speed less than 10 mph. In contrast, traditional turbine designs have marginal output even at 15.7 mph.
The compact vertical-axis squirrel-cage turbine design begins generating electricity with a 3 to 4 mph breeze. Using light-weight composite-carbon structural-fiber, the quiet squirrel-cage turbine is 5.5' diameter and 5.5' tall and weighs just 180 pounds. Over 100 turbines are currently being field tested throughout the country.
Information from eia.doe.gov/cneaf/electricity/california/statistics.html shows the average USA home requires 866 kWh per month and the average California home requires 548 kWh per month. The average Netherlands home requires less than 300 kWh per month. Canadian homes require an average of 575 kWh per month. Worldwide the average residence requires 366 kWh per month. The new turbine can substantially reduce or eliminate the electric bill of most homes in the world.
Thirty-five states have net-metering laws requiring electric utility companies to "carry-forward" kWh savings to future months to allow "banking" of savings. In states with net-metering programs, the electric meter will spin backwards whenever the power generated exceeds the immediate demand for electricity.
Our systems have a base price target of $7,500 plus installation. Two turbines can be paralleled for even greater output. Value added taxes will affect international pricing.
A recent USA TODAY/CNN/Gallup poll showed that 91% of the public favors incentives for wind, solar, and fuel cells. But, while there are tax credits for very large commercial wind turbines (Production Tax Credit), there is currently no federal program to support small systems. This will likely change when Congress reconvenes in January to reconsider the Energy Bill. A 15% residential small wind turbine investment tax credit is likely. Small businesses could use the credit if they forego depreciation.
Final configuration information and specifications are withheld until field testing is complete and mass production begins. A large backlog is expected to build within days of product launch. Persons who complete the survey will be the first to have complete information.
