Who says turbines can’t be sleek and silent? A manufacturer of vertical axis wind turbines offers a quieter model with an artsy design. After the success of its first model the eddy, Urban Green Energy has released the eddy GT 1-kW turbine.
The unit delivers energy through a grid-tie inverter, but maintains the same key features as the original eddy, including a low start-up speed, whisper-quiet operation, and a vertical axis design, meaning power can be generated regardless of the wind direction. Like eddy, its GT version assembly is said to be under an hour and mounts on either a pole or rooftop.
The turbine has a greater output than the original, and can reduce the amount of energy the customer receives from the grid, according to the company. The grid-tie inverter means on very windy days customers will be able to sell power back to their utility companies.
