Reno, Nev.-based Mariah Power, manufacturer of Windspire, has made available its proprietary vertical axis wind turbine for residential, commercial and government applications.
Formal results of testing for Windspire, including power curve data, will be released today. Mariah Power will make Windspire available for purchase at a price of $4,995, which includes the fully integrated unit and a five-year warranty.
‘Windspire is the first vertical axis wind generator with proven technology to overcome efficiency issues that have plagued predecessors, making it a true breakthrough product,’ says Mike Hess, CEO of Mariah Power. ‘It is affordable, attractive and easy to install. Windspire's efficiency is on par with most propeller-based wind turbines, but it is priced much lower and, unlike traditional propeller turbines, it rotates at the same speed as the wind, so it is slower, quieter and can take wind from any direction.’
