Building Turbines Product Information
Our turbine is designed for mounting onto flat commercial rooftops and its’ innovative and patented design is ideal for urban settings.
The turbine can help office buildings, schools, warehouses, distribution centers, airports, hotels, and a variety of other buildings offset electricity purchased from the grid by creating it on-site from the wind. The turbine creates reliable, cost-effective and clean renewable electricity with little building modification required.
Building Turbines' horizontal-axis wind turbines ("HAWT") easily mount onto commercial buildings and turn historically dead space into power producing real estate. The multi-directional design rests on HVAC-style curbs and is mounted along the roof's edge next to the parapet wall.
The turbine takes full advantage of what is called a "parapet vortex" which naturally occurs as wind accelerates up the side of a building and crests over the roof top edge. The axis of the turbine is centered in this vortex capturing maximum electrical power generation capability from the wind.
