WindTronics has announced the launch of its much-anticipated Honeywell Wind Turbine, which is now available through authorized dealers, retailers and partners. Best noted for always turning and generating power in as little as two miles per hour (mph), the Honeywell Wind Turbine's small size, light weight and negligible noise, ensures everyone with wind has the ability to generate renewable wind energy for their home or business.
"Our vision is to make renewable wind power truly distributed and widely available," said Reg Adams, president of WindTronics. "The ability to generate onsite power will help communities around the world convert the wind - bringing renewable energy technology into the mainstream."
The Honeywell Wind Turbine is now available for purchase around the world through WindTronics' authorized dealer network.
Weighing less than 185 pounds and measuring only six feet in diameter, the Honeywell Wind Turbine produces up to 1500kWh annually depending on height and location. This gearless wind turbine features an innovative Blade Tip Power System™ that utilizes a system of magnets and stators surrounding its outer ring to capture power at the blade tips where speed is greatest, practically eliminating mechanical resistance and drag. This enables the Honeywell Wind Turbine to start turning at 0.5 mph and generating energy in two mph of wind.
"The design of the Honeywell Wind Turbine is unlike anything I have seen before," said Kyle Biedermann, CEO of WindBucks Energy, a distributor of Honeywell Wind Turbine in Texas. "This product, which lives harmoniously in almost any setting, is beneficial anywhere there is wind and is a viable option for sustainable energy."
Designed to be flexible, the Honeywell Wind Turbine gives customers the choice to have the turbine mounted directly on a rooftop or use a pole. Additionally, customers can choose to connect the power directly to the building, to the grid, or to batteries using one of three connector options:
• Grid-tie – using the Power One Aurora® Grid Tie Inverter to feed renewable power to any utility worldwide
• Non-Grid Tie – using the WindTronics battery power management system called the SmartBox that converts wind power into electricity for the building
• Direct DC – an option which captures the power directly into 12, 24, or 48 volt batteries for storage in remote areas
Depending upon which connector option is chosen, the cost of the Honeywell Wind Turbine ranges starting at $5,795 (plus installation). Similar to installing an electric generator, the Honeywell Wind Turbine was designed to be installed by a licensed electrical contractor. WindTronics offers a list of authorized installers to help customers properly install the Honeywell Wind Turbine.
