For two years Arbor Wind, Ann Arbor, MI and Johnson System Inc., Marshall, MI, have been perfecting the application of a Vertical AXIS Wind Turbine to be used in 50 to 100kw wind applications. While vertical wind was developed in the 1940’s, new technology has allowed these two Michigan companies to bring the old methods into the 21st century.
Vertical wind is an untapped arena in green energy market. Vertical AXIS wind turbines catch wind blowing in any direction unlike horizontal wind turbines that need to point into the direction of the wind in order to work.
50KW to 100KW wind targets large consumers in industrial and agricultural markets i.e., manufacturing companies, large green houses, irrigation pumps and dairy farms to name a few. The vertical AXIS wind turbine utillizes direct drive thus eliminating costly gear box equipment.
