West Wind Power’s product is a patent pending innovative micro wind mill design that captures energy from the natural phenomena of air flow. It uses innovative slit position and width and hyperbolic intake and exhaust designs to more than double the ambient wind speeds. This increase makes economically feasible wind power in low wind environments (sub-class 4) possible.
The Windmill Is environmentally friendly as it does not harm birds or other flying animals. It is more aesthetically pleasing than conventional wind mills since it does not have exposed rotating blades. It can be manufactured from recycled materials and has low noise unlike a large wind mill which produces the disturbing low frequency noise (the so-called “WHOOOSH” sound) from the rotating blades. It has a small footprint and very few moving parts.
Flow simulations on our initial design project a 2.6X increase of ambient wind velocity, making efficient energy capture feasible even in low wind velocity regions.
