This vertical axis wind turbine technology offers advantages over current wind prop applications. The cylinder motion operates at a high efficiency rate than standard windmills. It will generate electrical power at much lower wind velocity at 2-mph. The capital outlay and the operating cost is also much lower compared to existing conventional windmill technology. This design offers many environmental advantages versus current wind towers. These wind turbines will achieve a vastly superior rate of return on investment based on strong, across-the-board improvements in all operating metrics over conventional wind generation technology.
The vertical axis wind turbine is a revolutionary new science technology for wind driven turbines. Its design offers many environmental advantages over the current wind prop applications. This Vertical Axis electrical power design requires significantly fewer capital costs compared to existing conventional windmill technology.
Moreover, this cylinder motion operates at higher efficiency rates than that of standard windmill outputs. The simplicity of its design and elimination of mechanical equipment creates longer operating windows and lower unit costs. This technology requires a smaller footprint, only 0.19 acres per 1MW compared to 1.5 acres conventional, high grade composite material design is structured for longevity, providing for longer product life, and built to operate for up to 50 years.
The technology’s unique magnetic design will lower friction resistance, while maintenance costs require less than 2% of the parts and components of conventional windmill designs. With shorter towers and smaller footprints, this technology provides a significant advantage in its overall application when compared to the competition. The newly designed base stands 20 ft. vertically combined with a 30 ft. tower and 40 ft. diameter to generate 1.5MW as opposed to the conventional windmill design that requires a tower up to 400 feet tall to generate the same amount. This will amount to nearly 83% less acreage per MW, as compared to a conventional wind farm. This technology is built and designed to operate at an 80% higher efficiency rate than its competitors. With up to twice the efficiency of its competition a 100 MW facility at .06 a Kilowatt hour will generate $42,480,000 of projected gross revenue operating at 80% of allocated time, resulting in twice the income of the traditional applications. Currently GreenTek has positioned itself with this technology energy partner to develop a project in Tehachapi, California. Tehachapi is a prime wind channel that will serve as GreenTek’s flagship project to produce over 100 MW of renewable energy.
