About the Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt
Capturing Clean, Affordable Wind Energy with Power …
Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt™ was developed for both residential use and utility scale projects including entire communities, neighborhoods or agricultural groups coming together on a project basis to generate power. The rooftop or pole mounted Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt™ is an affordable, quiet and powerful, bird safe, scalable wind turbine system.
Scalability: You can start with one Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt turbine and add more turbines per pole, and more poles as your power needs grow- without the cost, time or materials waste of major construction. We call multiple Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt configurations WindOrchards. Locally, the benefits would be the capability to easily generate power and have off-grid emergency power for any neighborhood.
Because of the unique wind turbulence smoothing capability of the blades, the Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt is an ‘urban tolerant’ wind turbine.
Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt can be retrofit to any utility pole, unused utility poles, or retrofit to other wind turbine poles.
Availability is critical to our business model. Once in production we will have the capability to manufacture several thousand turbines a month from one manufacturing operation. Future goals include expanding manufacturing of the Affordable Wind Turbines Vawt worldwide, especially in areas of critical need of economic development and energy.

Affordable Wind Turbines Microgrid Technology
Microgrid™ is a revolutionary new way to connect electronic products – an “energy operating system” that enables smart buildings to make our lives more secure and our energy cleaner and more affordable. Microgrid uses advanced power electronics to transmit both power and information on the same wires, helping our buildings produce, store, and manage power more efficiently. Microgrid technology is at the heart of all of Affordable Wind Turbines Energy’s products.
Self-generation of clean power by consumers is transforming the global energy landscape, but the power grid is far from ready. Consider three surprising electricity facts:
Electricity customers in Hawaii could save over 70% by using solar panels – but the utility won’t allow it, because the grid is bottlenecked.
Many commercial building owners pay double for electricity from ‘demand charges’ – but they can’t avoid them without compromising their operations.
A rooftop PV system is a great way to cut energy costs, but it’s worthless when the grid goes down – even when the sun is shining!
The grid is broken, and power customers are paying the price. In each case the solution is the same: smart microgrid technology that gives customers options, security, and savings.
Benefits for Homeowners: Savings and Security
Affordable Wind Turbines Energy’s Microgrid helps homeowners enjoy secure power and cost savings. Microgrid is built to help homeowners generate their own clean power, which is now the most affordable energy source in many places. But conventional renewable energy systems won’t keep your home powered during a blackout or grid failure. Microgrid is designed to incorporate battery storage, so your lights stay on and your furnace keeps running without the noise and hassle of a backup generator. And if your lifestyle takes you beyond the grid, Microgrid enables wind and solar power systems that provide balanced power day or night, all year around.
Benefits for Commercial Buildings: Scalable Secure Power
Secure power isn’t optional in today’s competitive business environment, where a few lost days can mean the difference between profit and peril. Microgrid enables smarter buildings that generate their own power, store and deliver energy to avoid demand charges and ride through blackouts, and prioritize power to your most critical functions. Affordable Wind Turbines Energy partners with leading solution providers to offer scalable building energy systems that deliver savings and security.
Why is Microgrid better?
Designed for Microgrids
Microgrid is designed to turn grid-dependent buildings into microgrids – energy networks that combine energy sources, storage, and loads to allow operation independent of the grid. The Microgrid microgrid was designed to plug-and-play, making it easy to combine different sources to build secure, efficient, cost-effective energy systems for homes and businesses. Because our buildings will increasingly produce as well as consume energy (the “Prosumer” model), Microgrid is built on bi-directional power electronics that can buy, sell, or store power efficiently.
Smarter Wires and the Internet of Things
Affordable Wind Turbines’s Microgrid microgrid approach delivers both energy and system information over the same wires, making every product on the network a smart node in the ‘Internet of Things.’ Abundance of power is signaled by the voltage of the Microgrid, making it simple to deliver powerful capabilities, like heating water when energy is plentiful, and selling power when prices are highest. Microgrid also uses Powerline Carrier communication (PLC) to share information – more reliably than wireless in tough, noisy environments.
The electrical grid we use today was designed in 1890 – one hundred years before the digital revolution – and hasn’t changed much since then. It makes and uses Alternating Current (AC), but almost every modern appliance and computer needs Direct Current (DC) to run, and today’s new clean power systems (like solar, wind, fuel cells, and electric vehicles) produce DC as well. AC adapters and converters waste valuable power, clutter our desks, and make it hard to build smarter electric grids. Affordable Wind Turbines Energy asked, “what would electricity distribution look like if it were designed for today’s energy sources and loads?”
Less Energy Loss
Microgrid sets a new standard for safe, efficient power distribution with a 380 volt DC bus. This means energy losses are 2.5 to 10X lower compared to old-fashioned AC wiring, and wiring costs can be lower. Converting power from clean energy sources to a Microgrid™ microgrid is significantly more efficient than converting to the AC grid, and less loss means more value to the building owner.
Microgrid saves capital cost by eliminating multiple AC/DC conversions, and by reducing the amount of expensive copper wire needed to transmit power. Integrated powerline carrier (PLC) communication eliminates the need to run control wiring or add expensive and unreliable wireless communications.
Built for Clean Power, Energy Storage, and EVs
Buying an electric vehicle is a great way to promote energy independence and greener transportation, especially if you produce your own clean electrons with wind or solar. Solar produces DC electricity, and EV’s run on DC, but multiple AC/DC conversions waste money and power. Microgrid significantly cuts energy losses, so customers can go farther on their own clean power.
An Open Standard
Affordable Wind Turbines Energy is excited to work with businesses, homeowners, product designers, and researchers who share our vision for a safer, cleaner world. More information about the Microgrid technology is available on the Microgrid™ Alliance website.
Affordable Wind Turbines manufactures micro wind turbine generators made entirely in the USA. Our micro wind turbine generators are built entirely within the USA and are value priced so that anyone can afford to explore wind turbine generated power.
We use the latest polymer materials and CNC equipment to manufacture state of the art inexpensive wind turbines.
When the power grid goes down (for whatever reason) there are few things more useful than a fully charged battery. If you've got one, for the most part, life can go on normally. If you don't have one, you're instantly back in the dark ages.
We design, manufacture and sell to the public, several small, inexpensive wind turbine generators that will charge batteries when the wind is blowing.
Depending upon which model of our wind turbines that you are interested in, our wind turbines are perfectly suited for:
Science Projects involving micro wind turbines
