Turbine developer Aeronautica Windpower, Plymouth, Mass, says the wind industry has been looking for a turbine that produces more than 100 kW, without having to go to the size or expense of a 600 or 700 kW machine. The Aeronautica 29-225, one solution to the problem, can generate 225 kW yet sit on a 40-m monopole tower. The stall-regulated wind turbine will fit on many suburban and urban properties. Its simplicity of design provides a reliable and cost effective turbine for commercial, industrial or municipal needs. Erection and transport is by common equipment. There are about 365 turbines of this sort installed in Denmark, the U.S., Germany, and Sweden.
