Connecticut Engineer Aims for Better, Cheaper Wind Turbine

An engineer and former race car driver in Connecticut hopes to build a better, cheaper wind turbine that would produce power at one-third the cost of grid electricity. Change Wind Corp. could be in production with its 36-kW, vertical-axis turbines as early as the first quarter of 2015. “There will be a day when there are no more subsidies,” Jim Bardia told The Courant. “There’s a series of incremental gains that we are able to pick up with our machines at low wind speed that are completely missed by the bulk of the market.” (h/t to¬†InsideClimate News [1])
