Eddy GT Turbine Offers Green Energy to Modern City Dwellers

Urban Green Energy has just launched a new, one-kilowatt wind turbine designed specifically for city rooftop use. The extremely quiet Eddy GT turbine is a chic piece of wind technology which is seemingly made for modern city residents. The turbine rotates on a vertical axis, optimizing wind capture, even as the air stream shifts within the dynamic city landscape.

The Eddy GT takes up just 40 square feet to generate a kilowatt— to get that much juice from a solar panels, you would need up to 400 square feet, which is a tough sell in major cities with limited space, like New York and San Francisco. While not a light investment at $7,000 per turbine, Urban Green Energy CEO Nick Blitterswyk estimates that in California, with the green energy rebate, it would be possible to break even in 10 years.
