Micro wind turbines

Conventional wind turbine technology has been a bit out of reach for most residential consumers living in urban areas - until now. Researchers have developed Motorwind, a micro-wind turbine technology small enough for private use in both rural and urban environments.

Unlike large-scale wind turbines, Motorwave's micro-wind turbines are light, compact (25 cm rotor diameter), and can generate power with wind speeds as low as 2 meters/second.
