Vertical axis turbines for low-wind-speed areas

By / November 23, 2009

Back in June we reported on a futuristic design of wind power generators: vertical axis turbines. Now researchers at the University of Virgina are developing a smaller, more efficient wind turbine uniquely designed to generate power in low-wind-speed areas. And they are building these turbines with a vertical axis, reports the Richmond Times-Dispatch. The group…
