Honeywell Wind Turbine

Here is an interesting new concept.

The Honeywell Wind Turbine eliminates traditional wind turbine gear box, shaft and generators. The Honeywell Wind Turbine is a gearless, “free wheeling’’ turbine that generates power from the blade tips (where the speed lies) rather than through a complex slow center shaft. By practically eliminating mechanical resistance and drag, the Honeywell Wind Turbine creates significant power (2000 kWh/yr) operating in a greater range of wind speeds (2-45 mph) than traditional wind turbines. The highest output, lowest cost per kWh installed turbine ever made. So powerful, so simple.

The price is coming down along with getting all parts needed for a full installation. None of this one piece at a time routine. So, bottom line, this one has the biggest bang for your buck!

    With the maximum 45 mph (72 km/h), it’s a very high speed wind turbine indeed, Linda. It would be even better, if we can know the exactly price of this device!

  2. Linda Says:

    Hi Wilson …. it is around $4500 for the turbine, inverter and power station. Not bad.

  3. Lynn Says:

    It’s good to see more alternative power options especially if the prices are more reasonable and more people can afford to implement it.

  4. Sadie Says:

    I think wind turbines are a great idea. This one seems like a great idea. I hope this catches more sooner rather than later.

  5. Linda Says:

    Hi Lynn … You bet! As more people buy them, the prices will come down. Hopefully, as the economy turns around, folks will start looking at getting these types of products to reduce their use of electricity.

  6. Linda Says:

    Hi Sadie … I hope so too! It comes as a whole package which will help.

    This looks just like the one invented at Grand Valley State University (Michigan) just a couple of years ago. I wonder if they sold the design to Honeywell. They were saying about 2 years till availability at a cost of about $2000.

    It’s nice to finally see the price of these types of alternative energy systems dropping to a point where the “Average Joe” can afford them.

    Hi sharkbytes … Good point as I do not know. There was nothing out there on the net to say differently. But the prices are starting to come down and if it goes down to $2000, then this would be ideal for everyone!.

  14. Vertical wind turbine Says:

    The newer models of vertical wind turbines keep getting smaller, sleeker, and more efficient with each new design. Besides the benefits previously mentioned, recent models currently boast of the following; a lower profile on rooftops, not subject to the same regulations as their horizontal counterparts, less noise, almost no vibration, lower maintenance and repair costs due to fewer moving parts, and self regulation spin speeds in high wind circumstances.

  15. Jonathan Says:

    The only issue I have is that net metering is not supported at this time. It will be supported when net metering is standardized nationally. This will not happen anytime soon. Net metering is one of the great benefits of residential wind or solar, Does anyone know if these units can be modified for net metering?

  16. Spencer @ Build A Wind Turbine Says:

    it is great to see that sustainable energy is finally getting the research and advancements required,the next few years should see many more of us relying on our natural resources, the new honeywell wind turbine looks to be a massive step forward

  17. vertical wind turbine Says:

    VAWTs (vertical axis wind turbines) are both efficient and quiet, making them more suitable for energy production in residential areas than previous wind-based renewable energy technologies. Many current VAWT models resemble eggbeaters, with two blades attached to a central shaft, which is in turn anchored in a power generator. Others have a number of large, flat blades protruding from the central axis; and still others have a helix of extremely light plastic surrounding the axis. They typically stand between two and five feet in height and the best ones are able to attain 30 – 60% efficiency, depending on where they are located.

  18. Linda Says:

    Hi vertical wind …. thank you for clarifying vawts. I have seen both sides present their ideas/views. It is hard for the consumer but the neat thing is that there is options.

    This article is 4 year old and till now wind turbines got many new updates in technologies that made wind turbines more powerful and efficient.

  24. Paige Says:

    This is article is four years old, but I found it to be useful. I am doing a research on the evolution of wind turbines and I am trying to get information form all the available resources. Thanks for this article.

  25. Rachel the biscuit farmer. Says:

    I found this article of Honeywell Wind Turbines very enlightening and educating.You have put light on some interesting and amusing facts in the form the data of power,speed comparing to other mechanical wind turbines.This can provide a good guidance to the beginners like me to install a new wind turbine in my farm.I have been reading,researching about stuffs on this topic from a long time and it looks like this is what exactly I was looking for.The best part is that I have got all the information at one place which saved my time and efforts in surfing all over the net.

    Peter Senese’s THE DEN OF THE ASSASSIN is the first E-book release in a series of the best-selling
    author’s previously hardcover releases of his noteworthy historical fiction novels, which
    include CLONING CHRIST, CHASING THE CYCLONE, PREDATORS GAMES
    (Winter, 2011), and QUEST (Spring, 2012). Bankers and Insurers are trying to use trade
    deals, which can weaken the Dodd Frank legislation designed to prevent
    a repeat of the 2008 crisis. The Occupy Movement has increased public acceptance to mass protests and a more flexible resilience to the personal unconvinced that are caused by it
    because they feel a connection to the struggle they represent.

    With the rise in technology these days, the option
    for 3D photos and printing is growing hastily
    and businesses now are more into in 3D pictures.

    In the process of rapid prototyping, a prototype or functioning model can
    be built rapidly, and tested for its functionality, performance and output.
    The project has resulted in the creation of a low-cost,
    low-end, build-it-yourself 3-d printer design.
