Next Generation of Wind Turbine for Home Power

02 August 2001


Aeromax has introduced a new land wind turbine generator, the Aeromag Lakota, which employs new carbon fiber blade technology that significantly improves power output at a greatly reduced cost.

""This system is now available for small and large users at a very reasonable price point,"" said Lexington Bartlett, president and chief executive officer of Aeromax. ""The Lakota provides quieter, more efficient and more economical operations than have ever been available on the market before."" Aeromag Lakota are outfitted with uni-directional carbon fiber blades. Recent Aeromag blade technology advancements and breakthroughs have significantly reduced the cost of the wind turbine generator.

Competitive testing results show conventional wind turbines are 25 percent to 164 percent higher priced from a cost per watt perspective at rated power (turbine vs. turbine). At Lakota peak power rating of 1400 watts, the difference is 78 percent to 252 percent.

Aeromax is the exclusive distributor of the Aeromag (a sister corporation) advanced small wind turbine systems. Small wind turbines are widely used in home and village power, wind and solar hybrid systems that enable a greatly reduced cost of energy and a substantial advance in the lessening of dependence on fossil fuels.
