Super cheap, super efficient wind turbine could power your home for free for the rest of your life
An Indian startup company has developed a wind turbine the size of a ceiling fan that can generate up to 5 kilowatt hours of electricity per day for $750:
By comparison, household windmills currently on the market generate only a quarter of the electricity for almost twice the price:
“We are trying to revolutionize the industry by making clean energy to the common man,” says Arun George, CEO and founder of Avant Garde Innovations.
For the cost of an iphone, he says, people can be liberated from electric bills and oil dependence for at least 20 years (the guaranteed life of the turbine):

I want to know more about the windmill
then click on the link for their company – it’s right in the article!
Except there is no info on what their idea of a small house is…or actual cost…or anything for anyone who wants information before turning over contact info.
5 kilowatt hours. It is right there in the article. Just look on your electric bill to see your consumption.
It says it can make 5kw a day. Which would be right for a small house. Our house uses more than that, but it’s a good amount and certainly we should all try and use that much.
More info and the contact info please.
I want one for my house here in always windy Kansas USA
I would like to know if they could be made available in Canada?
Where can we find these windmills
Send me the information on where to get this windmill
Not seemingly commercially available so far… https://www.avantgardeinnovations.com/
Is there any more information accessible? Is it on the market yet?
Please tell me more.
I would like to know more about power created by windmills.
Please more info. Thx
I’m interested in purchasing one for my home. Do they install too?
Where can you buy one of these $750 windmills?
I would love more info as well
More info please
I am very interested to have one for my farm in the Philippines. How do I get one?

3-5 kw for the price of a Iphone? I don’t think so. It says “educate” in the videoclip, it doesn’t say lie !!!
I think if you read it you will find it says 3.5 kwh per day. Quite different to a 3.5 kw turbine.
It’s very small for a house in the USA, but a bigger windmill shouldn’t cost much more and connected to a battery pack and a assembly of solar panels, it could power up a good size home !
I would like one for my home in Portland Oregon.
Also, more information for me too.
I am intrested in one I am from south africa
I just want to see how many people you triggered by using the words, “An Indian startup company”.
A quick look at the numbers and keep kW and kWh very distinct. The size of the Indian machine (relative to the man working on it)would make me guess that it has an output of maybe 200W and so would make about 5kWh in a 24h windy day. The wind turbine from Amazon is 1200W (6 times bigger if my guess is right) and so should, on a windy day, produce about 29kWh compared to the 5kWh from the Indian machine. Of course it is more likely to produce only 30% of that – 9kWh.
Depending where you live this technoolgy may or may not make sense. In places with poor or no electical infrastructure this might be a good idea. Here in Ontario, Canada, my power cost is 7 cents per kWh at night and 17cents in the daytime so a 5kWh per day machine would save me about 50 cents per day give or take; not worth the investment. Also in this climate I need a 30kW supply sometimes to keep my house warm on winter nights when there is no wind.
The problem with wind energy is the wind doesn’t blow 24/7
