    Over Other Small Wind Turbines
     

     

    Greater Output

     

     
    More Efficiently Converts Wind Energy to Usable Power
    Maintains Efficiency Over a Wider Range of Wind Speeds
     

     

     
    Result: Greater Annual Output
     

     

     

    Quieter

     

     

         
    Slower Rotational Speed (60 rpm vs. up to 330 for 3-bladed turbines)
    Enclosed Blades (no vortex off blade tips to create high-pitched noise)
     

     

       
    Result: Silent Operation
     

     

     

    Safer

     

     

         
    Slower Rotational Speed
    Blades Secured at Both Ends
     

     

       
    Result: Reduced Threat of Breakage
     

     

         
    Appears Solid When Spinning
    Enclosed Blades Can't "Chop" Objects that Enter Plane of Rotation
     

     

       
    Result: Reduced Threat To Wildlife
     

     

     

    More Durable

     

     

         
    Fewer Moving Parts
    Slower Rotational Speed
    Blades Secured at Both Ends
     

     

       
    Result:  Less Stress On Turbine, Generator and Tower
        Less Vulnerable in Severe Weather
        Low-Maintenance
        More Reliable Power Output

    PowerJetTM vs. Solar Applications2
     

     

    Wind Challenge:
    Intermittent Energy Production; Dependent On Wind Resources
     
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    Low cut-in speed increases energy production through wider range of wind speeds
     

     

     
    Wind Challenge:
    Energy Output Varies With Wind Speed
     
       
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    Consistent tip speed ratio maximizes energy output
     

     

     
    Wind Challenge:
    Less Government Support Than Solar
     
       
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    New, more efficient technology entering market while federal and state incentives are increasing
     

     

     
    Wind Challenge:
    Permitting & Siting Requirements Are Challenging
     
       
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    Silent and safe operation addresses urban concerns
     

     

     
    Wind Challenge:
    Not Appropriate As Stand-Alone Off-Grid Application
     
       
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    Efficient and reliable output; high tolerance for severe weather
     

     

     
    Wind Challenge:
    Moving Parts, Exposure To Elements May Cause Reliability Issues
     
       
     
    POWERJETTM Advantage:
     
    Operates through winds in excess of 65 mph, increasing energy output through wider range of wind speeds
     
    Enclosed blades and few moving parts create high tolerance for severe weather
