Vertical AXIS Wind Turbine
Arbor Wind and Johnson System Inc. have perfected the Vertical AXIS Wind Turbine to be used in 50 to 100kw wind applications. Vertical wind is an untapped arena in the 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. Fifty KW to 100KW wind targets large consumers in industrial and agricultural markets i.e., grain elevators, 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.
