A startup in southern India has revolutionized small-scale wind power by creating a unique wind turbine the size of ceiling fan that can generate 5 kWh/kW per day — with only a one-time investment of US$750. So for the cost of an iPhone, we can go off-grid and power an entire household for a lifetime, even at low wind speeds.
Avant Garde Innovations (AGI) was launched by two brothers — Arun and Anoop George — from Kerala, India, who believe their invention could make the worldwide energy crisis a thing of the past. According to the company, their goal is to eradicate energy poverty, reduce dependence on local power grids and encourage self sufficiency through affordable, renewable energy. “In doing so, we believe we can collectively usher in our world a cleaner environment, new economic prosperity and social change.” A startup with a “green heart and soul,” they aim for a market launch of the turbine sometime in 2017.
For those who recognize the dire need for sources of clean energy, but don’t have the capital to implement a standard off-grid system, Avant Garde’s wind turbine is a game-changer — especially for impoverished regions around the world.
