"Roof-mounted whisper-quiet urban turbines"

PREFACE NOTE OF IMPORTANCE : The Wyndpower Group is no longer promoting a wind turbine design concept that was invisioned to be mounted on a rooftop and that could respond to winds as low as 3.8 mph. Although the design may still be in R&D by the manufacturer, the private website www.wyndpower.com aka www.wyndpowergroup.com has been removed.

THE FOLLOWING IS LEFT FOR ARCHIVE PURPOSES. IT IS NO LONGER ACTIVE NOR ACCURATE IN TERMS OF PRESENT-TENSE REALITY. IT IS NOW HISTORY.

The Wyndpower Group was promoting the potential development of a wind turbine design concept that could be mounted on a rooftop and that could respond to winds as low as 3.8 mph. Presently still in R&D by the manufacturer.

This would potentially mean that a homeowner could generate up to 1/2 of the electricity used by a typical home.

The principles of operation for the unit are as follows:

: 1) The vertical axis wind turbine design utilizes wind from every direction,

: 2) the turbine takes advantage of the increase in power density as the laminar wind passes over a roofline.

Comparison to large wind turbines : The reason that GE, for example, uses the very tall, large bladed wind turbines is that they want to capture the higher speed winds that exist at higher altitudes. However, few places offer wind speeds for which large turbines are designed. The GE wind turbine blades are bigger than a house, whereas the smaller wind turbine used for individual homes can be installed by a local contractor. It only needs to generate a fraction of the power that the big wind turbines produce to be practical and can take advantage of lower wind speeds common in most areas.

FAQ

Source: Autoresponse from Wyndpower newsletter subscription. Sept. 12, 2004.

Introduction : 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. Furthermore, there are over 2 billion people on earth that have access to no electricity whatsoever. Worldwide availability of power could be provided to remote sites by small wind turbines capable of generating electricity at wind speeds as low as 3.8 to 5 mph.

What is the size of the market? : The potential market for small wind systems is 5 million units in the USA alone, according to the Department of Energy. The energy future of the world could be served by the new roof-mounted urban wind turbine.

When will product and specs be available? : Specifications will be released by the manufacturer as launch time approaches in the future.

Who is the developer? : A privately owned, debt-free company, that has made over one billion dollars in sales in the last 18 years, located in the USA.

What is the anticipated output? : The design goal of the turbine is to meet 1/3 to 1/2 of the power requirements of homes in all of Canada and half of the U.S.
