Introducing the Honeywell Turbine
Honeywell Wind Turbine
Saving the world, one step at a time.
Why was it necessary to redesign the turbine?
With 90% of North America’s actual wind resources below 9mph (14.5 km/h) on average, it was essential to develop a technology capable of starting-up in wind speeds as low as 2 mph (3 km/h) and remaining operational through 42 mph (68 km/h). Traditional turbines rarely start turning before 7.5 mph (12 km/h) and shut down by 29 mph (47 km/h) to protect their mechanical systems. It is this greater capture and conversion of available wind energy that enables the Honeywell Wind Turbine to provide such a meaningful percentage of a home’s energy needs. Enabling consumers to leverage wind as an energy source , and harness the the power of all (over 99 % ) of the winds that blow in their area.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine’s Power Blade System creates energy at the blade tips, rather than through a central gear and rotor used in most turbine technology. By eliminating the resistance of a central gear and the requirement to drive over a generator, significant efficiencies are gained in cost and energy output.
Always Turning, Always Generating Energy
Automatically Follows the Wind with its directional fins
The turbine’s installed cost is approximately 1/2 the cost of traditional turbines with a lower installed cost per kWh(in class and size) than any turbine on the market. Adding to the value in some areas, are federal, provincial or state rebates covering anywhere from 30% to 100% of the overall cost.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine Non Grid Tied model, comes complete with a computerized smart box, inverter and inter connect switch to wire the system into a household panel. The Honeywell Wind Turbine is designed to be installed where the power is being consumed and can produce 2752 kWh/yr in class 4 winds at 33′, steady state.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine Grid Tied model also comes complete with a D.C.Charger and is used in conjunction with an Outback GTFX 3048 Inverter to be installed in locations where it is financially beneficial to export the power back to the grid under a Feed In Tarriff Program, such as Ontario’s micro FIT program.
