Honeywell Wind Turbine

The Honeywell Wind Turbine is manufactured by Windtronics. It uses a brand new type of wind technology that completely eliminates the center gear box and depends on the magnetic output from the outer ring. In most other turbines the gear box is usually the centerpiece. This turbine captures the energy from this outer ring in the same way a generator would.

This wind turbine can be used in a lot more situations, when compared to other wind generators that are available out there. It has a low cut in speed which is two miles per hour, plus the ability to run in winds that go as much as 38 miles per hour. This wide spectrum allows this turbine to be used in many more wind situations such as in your residence, your farm or even a light commercial industrial space.

This wind turbine can provide one third of your household yearly energy requirements. This is in an environment where your wind speed average is 10 to 12 miles per hour. This is actually not an outrages wind speed, it is actually very common. This generator can be mounted on any roof and is about six foot in diameter. the direct current that is produced in the outer ring is converted to alternating current you can use in your home by the smart box that is usually located within the home.

If the wind changes directions or becomes too powerful, they have installed a motor that automatically turns the turbine to adjust it to optimum operational levels. If properly secured to the roof this turbine can survive wind speeds of up to 140 mph. As far as the price is concerned you can expect to pay between $4500 to $6000 for the actual generator and then another $3000 in installation costs. There are some federal government tax credits available for this unit from 30% all the way up to 75% it all depends on the state that you currently reside in.
