“News out of Clarkson, that a professor and his graduate students have come up with a wind turbine design that will provide increased efficiency. This wind power project is different, as it is aimed at a design that will be used in homes in the rural areas of the country. Patent is pending, so details regarding the actual configuration of blades is hush hush at this point. They are hoping to win a patent soon and they are now being backed by Warner Energy of Syracuse who hopes to bring the design to the market. A full scale prototype is set to begin in July.”
Personal wind power, if it can be tamed safely and efficiently would add a big boost in grid tied home power generation. I have never heard of Warner Energy of Syracuse, but if they could produce the turbines locally, it would be another step in putting Upstate NY on the green map.
