VQ Wind Turbines

VQ WindJet™ Overview

VQ Wind offers a family of small wind turbines, ranging from 1kW output to 10kW. Our patent-protected vertical axis, twin rotor design matches or exceeds the electricity production of the widely-accepted “propeller” designs and offers significant advantages:

  • Safer
  • Quieter
  • Better Economics

Benefits

  • Low noise <40 dBA
  • Reduces bird and bat kills
  • Eliminates ice-sling
  • Eliminates flicker problems
  • More power in shifting wind
  • More power in wind farms
  • Longer lifespan

Features

  • Guide vanes for adjustments to wind shifts
  • Less tower offset yields about 4X the power per acre of land
  • Lower rotor speed (~10-15% of propeller)
  • Lower vibration
  • No torque issues
