The founders of Avant Garde Innovations, Arun and Anoop George said, “This will bring down the cost of setting up a windmill from INR2,00,000 to INR50,000 per kilowatt”. This wind turbine of 1KW capacity produces five units per day, which is sufficient for a middle class household.
One important feature of this turbine is, it can generate power even at low wind speeds and still can meet the requirement of providing sufficient power to the household. It is currently pending for patent approval. In fact, The United Nations Foundation has approved this design. i.e., this turbine received recognition from The UNF.
The company has received many offers from foreign countries only because, this turbine’s design is so simple that it can be used as hydel or tidal turbines and also with a few modifications as an automobile motor.
