The Project

StarWind is a dual-purpose wind/hydro turbine. It’s teardrop shaped spiral bladed body, was designed to address the concerns of customers, and resolve issues plaguing conventional wind turbines. It easily allows rooftop installation and the full size 5-foot unit will generate 1 to 3 kW of output power from its enclosed axial-flux direct drive generator.
