Small Roof-Mounted Wind Turbines Could Power Rural India

When we think of wind power, we mainly think of large, sprawling wind farms, but in developing nations, smaller, distributed wind projects could be a perfect fit.

Several thousand villages across India are not connected to the national grid.  In those rural areas, one small wind turbine could generate enough electricity to cover the basic needs of a home, like cooling and cialis no rx required lighting. Localized, distributed wind power would also carry the advantage of not needing expansive transmission lines to viagra how much carry electricity from centralized power plants to remote villages.

That type of one-turbine-per-house project is just what India's Tata Group (best known for the buy ultram no prescription incredibly cheap Tata Nano) is hoping to start bringing to those villages.  Tata is lowest price viagra america starting to test a 2 kW, roof-mounted turbine that would be able to power multiple ceiling fans (60 W rated) and lights (40 W).  If linked with battery systems for back-up power, other appliances could run on the wind as well.

Rural America could be powered by roof mounted wind turbines too.

I don't think it is going to propecia best price uk be a good thing to have so many batteries in India. I can't imagine they dispose of them properly.

I am happy that people are getting into light distributed power plants though.

very cool. reminds me of d.light - the lighting company that's helping families w/o electricity in rural asia use incredibly cheap solar powered handheld lights.

this type of stuff is so critical to improving the lives of try it cialis sales online rural villagers who do not have access to the electricity grid.
How patronising

Jeff, Indians are much more likely to reuse or recycle batteries (and almost everything else) with much more care than the average American, they haven’t yet got the disposable habit…

have any of you read
"The boy who harnessed the wind : creating currents of electricity and hope" by Kamkwamba, William.

very inspiring story of a young boy in Malwai who built a wind mill from scratch using cast off materials

As far as I know most studies concluded that micro windpower is not worth investing in. This is mainly because the power generated is much to low compared to the energy (and costs) invested in building the soft levitra thing.
The incredible machine build by the Malawian boy (as mentoined by @cwiegardt) is worth it though, because he only used waste materials.
I wonder if the Tata company is able to create a machine that is levitra best price worth investing in. Maybe they use waste materials as well?

Hey, Smart Idea,
I doubt, the sustainability of such installations because as a mentality to generic propecia viagra repair/recycle till the last atom of any material/machine, prevails in almost all Ind...
If by any reason turbine stops, very few might take pain to get it back in working condition expending money, else till date it was fine without electricity....
However, wishing all the best to The Great TATA.
