Mass Megawatts builds low cost wind augmentation system

Greentech Lead America: Mass Megawatts Wind Power has
started construction on a demonstration low cost wind system that implements the
company’s patented wind augmentation technology.  The company will also
install a wind unit without the new low cost augmenter next to the augmented
system to prove the reduction in the cost of producing wind generated
electricity to potential customers. 

The Mass Megawatts’ wind
augmentation system increases the wind velocity directed at the turbine by
an average of 70 percent resulting a threefold increase in the electrical power
generated by the turbine.

The Company’s augmentation system helps wind turbines to
operate profitably in lower wind-speed locations. The system eliminates the
need for turbine structures to exceed a height of 80 feet to realize adequate
wind velocity thus reduces material and installation costs.

Using horizontal or propeller type turbine blades, the
cost per rated kilowatt is projected to be less than $1000 and anticipated to
approach $600 in mass production while traditional wind power systems realize a
cost of $1500 to $2000 per rated kilowatt.

Mass Megawatts Wind Power delivers wind-powered water pump
system in Colorado

Recently, Mass Megawatts delivered a larger wind-powered,
water pump system in Colorado. The company said Mass Megawatts water pump
system provides a low-cost solution for water delivery applications commonly
needed on farms.
