Rogue River Wind, Ltd, formed to develop, produce and market a high efficiency wind turbine to benefit Oregon is striking a deal with Portland State University. PSU will optimize a unique, high bandwidth generator capable of producing power in low and high wind speeds. At 15mph this 12′ turbine will produce 3KW and can achieve double digit output at higher wind speeds. PSU is establishing a test center which will analyze data collected from an installation expected this fall in Bandon, Oregon, known for its ample wind resource.
This new turbine owes its genesis to an earlier ducted fan design
