The Honeywell Windgate wind turbine from EarthTronics measures less than 6 feet (1.8m) across and weighs less than 95lbs (43kg)
The turbine can be installed on a house or business rooftop, wall or on a self-standing pole, so that power is generated where it is consumed
The Honeywell Windgate wind turbine comes with a computerized control box, power inverter, and an interconnect switch to wire the system into a household panel
The Windgate generates energy using its gearless “free wheeling” Blade Tip Power System that reduces mechanical resistance and drag
Has affordable, practical home wind power generation become a reality? The Honeywell Windgate wind turbine from EarthTronics looks like it could be a contender. Developers EarthTronics and Honeywell Corp hope the Windgate wind turbine will help meet the energy needs of homeowners and businesses, even if they are not located in prime “windy” areas. EarthTronics says the 6-foot wide, 95-pound Windgate can start to spin in breezes as low as 2mph and can create more power with less wind than other types of wind turbines.
