It is really amazing considering how rapidly were running out of fossil fuels supplied energy. Whether you're a believer that our exodus from our current supply sources of energy will be in this generation or in the next couple of generations,we all know it is coming.
In the short term though, there is a lot we can do to take advantage of the cost savings that wind energy provides in the short term.
Wind helix turbines are a great opportunity to really make a dent in home power costs! The helix design is very simple and will operate very reliably for years to come.
You do need to check out the opportunities that are available and understand the wind energy on your own property.
Vertical-axis wind turbines of all kinds are becoming increasingly popular. However, there is a special sub-classification of vertical-axis devices is the wind helix turbine and they are skyrocketing. They can be an ideal renewable energy solution for urban environments because they are simple to install, making them the perfect urban solution.
The primary advantages of wind helix turbines are:
* More Efficient
* They don't harm birds
When compared with horizontal-axis wind turbines, vertical-axis turbines in general don't fare well in the efficiency department. Horizontals can typically achieve efficiencies of over 50% but verticals are lucky to get 30%. However, wind helix turbines do better than that, reaching efficiencies of 35% or more.
Also, wind helix turbines operate with lower inertia, meaning they can change direction of rotation in chaotic wind very quickly to adapt to the changes in wind direction.
Vertical-axis turbines are much quieter than horizontal-axis devices. Studies have shown that wind helix devices have a hypnotic effect on people as they sit and watch them spin. Most are roof mounted and are made to have look as the roofs themselves.
That's also one strong advantage that wind helix turbines have over the other types is that they just don't stand out so much. They blend in with their environments better than other types of wind turbines.
Finally, wind turbines have gotten an awful reputation for killing birds. When birds migrate, they tend to do so on a consistent path and if a wind turbine is in the way, the birds simply run into them and get killed. Wind helix turbines with their smaller swept area, don't present that same danger to birds.
In conclusion, wind helix turbines are becoming a very popular area of the wind turbine market. That is very positive news because many municipal jurisdictions ban wind turbines or at least significantly restrict what kind and size you can have through local ordinance. They have great potential because they blend in with their environments better than other verticals and people enjoy watching them!
