Jellyfish Wind Appliance

March 19th, 2009 · No Comments

While surfing the web the other day I ran across a pretty innovative wind turbine from Clarian Technologies. It’s called the Jellyfish Wind Appliance. It’s quiet and affordable. Clarian hopes to mass produce them for a retail price point of $400.

I like the vertical design and the price point. Distributed power generation should play a key role in the next smart power grid. It promotes self reliance and energy conservation by reducing the power loss through transmission. While this model isn’t designed to be directly connected to the grid, I think it’s a good start and a perfect low cost addition to existing solar installations.
