As one of nature’s most destructive forces, hurricanes are unstoppable storms that can cause total devastation for coastal communities. While Mother Nature is unpredictable and uncontrollable, there are researchers and scientists who think hurricanes can be weakened or even stopped. One idea: wind turbines.
Sauer Energy, one of the leading companies in the small wind segment, is getting its product closer to the consumer after striking 25 distribution deals for its WindCharger wind turbine, a vertical axis unit to generate wind power on a small scale.
WindCharger only requires a wind speed of five miles
All wind turbines are equipped with a certain power control feature in case the speed of the wind is too high or too low and to have a frequency coherent with the grid. The traditional and the simplest and least expensive method in this respect is a system of natural limitation known as “stall”. The blades are mounted directly on the hub at a fixed angle. When the wind
