Start-Up in India Offers Home Wind Power for the Cost of a Smart Phone
A start-up company in India has developed a cheap wind turbine that delivers three to five kilowatt-hours of electricity per day, enough to power a single home, and can be installed for the cost of a smart phone.
“Our goal is to eliminate energy poverty, reduce dependence on struggling state power grids, and create energy self-sufficiency for all the needy ones through distributed, localized, and affordable renewable energy,” Avant Garde Innovations states on its website. “In doing so, we believe we can collectively usher in our world a cleaner environment, new economic prosperity, and social change.”
