Vertical Axis Wind Turbine Gets Funding

Mariah Power HQ (TGW) – Mariah Power has raised $500,000 from venture capital firm Big Sky Partners for its vertical axis wind turbine, it said this week.

The ground-mounted, vertical-axis home turbine is expected to be available later this month for $4000.

By Mariah Power’s calculations, the company’s turbine is capable of generating a third of the electricity for a U.S. single-family home.

Vertical Wind Turbines are the most common wind turbines used. Consisting of one to three blades that spin around a rotor, these turbines look like giant propellers jutting from the landscape atop an aerodynamic tower on a hillside. Wind passes through the blades, affecting the pressure on either side. This pressure creates a lift force that causes the blades to rotate around the rotor. The rotor converts the power of the wind into usable energy. Both cost effective and efficient, these turbines harness the power of the winds that blow several meters above the ground.
