The first Vertical Axis Wind Turbine has gone live at the home of Tim Williams in San Diego County! This 3.4 kW Falcon turbine from WePOWER promises to be virtually free from vibration, noise, and maintenance. And, it’s safe for birds.
With all the flack both pros and cons, “It’s not easy being Green!” Although WePOWER has a building reputation for the quality and integrity of its turbine design and certified installations, the San Diego County Building Department required a satisfactory report from a qualified third party before allowing installation. TUV SUD America, Inc., an internationally recognized testing and certification organization, inspected and approved the job. And, as they say…. the rest is history.
The 3.4 kW Falcon turbine was installed on an 18′ pole on Williams’ property by Joe Moore Construction, an authorized WePOWER dealer. To read more and see more photos, click here.
