Fast Wind is a Terrible Thing to Waste
As unbelievable as it may sound, today’s wind turbines are unable to harvest the energy from high-speed wind. If the blades of the wind turbine turn too fast, the generator inside the turbine will break.
NextPower360’s wind generator captures the wind’s full power potential, including fast wind, doubling a wind turbine’s power output at a lower levelized cost of energy.
Every year, the wind industry fails to convert into electricity over $10 billion dollars worth of wind energy that hits wind turbine blades. This unharvested power could supply all the electricity needs of New York City 13 times over.
