Wind Harvest International
|Wind Harvest International (WHI) has developed a straight-bladed,
vertical-axis wind turbine that offers the first cost-effective
solution to harvesting high energy, turbulent near-ground winds.
Using a methodical approach that involved designing, building and verifying 11 different models, WHI created a rugged VAWT and discovered the “coupled vortex effect”.
Each feature represents a breakthrough in vertical axis technology. As a result, WHI’s Linear Array Vortex Turbine Systems (LAVTS) can achieve peak efficiencies near the theoretical limit for any type of wind turbine design and will be among the most cost effective of any turbine.
