PowerMill™ designed and built by WindStream Technologies and solves the problem of deploying utility scale wind power devices where conventional Horizontal Axis Wind Turbines (HAWT) do not meet the geographical or resource needs of the area. Built to harness lower wind speeds than are required by large HAWT, the PowerMill™ utilizes WindStream’ proprietary Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) technology with a system of solar panels making up a true hybrid renewable energy solution.
Packaged into a convenient turn-key solution, the PowerMill™ is uniquely designed to be installed where traditional utility scale devices cannot provide a compelling return on investment for the owner/operator. The first PowerMill™ systems are being deployed in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina and will total 1.85MW’s. Check out the gallery below for images of the PowerMill™ system.
