Vertical Wind Turbines

Here at Solar Dad & Sons, we’re about clean energy—even when that means going beyond the sun. We also install another source of renewable energy for New York homes and businesses: vertical wind turbines, producers of clean wind energy.

Just like solar energy, wind energy can be incorporated into your home’s electric system, reducing your monthly utility bill along with your carbon footprint.

What is a Vertical Wind Turbine?

A vertical wind turbine is a little different from the typical windmill-style turbines you’ve likely seen in sprawling wind farms. Vertical axis wind turbines, also called VAWTs, are designed so that its vertically oriented rotor shaft and blades can catch the wind from any direction—unlike horizontal wind turbines, which must be oriented into the wind.

Vertical Wind Turbines for Homes & Businesses

Unlike their horizontal counterparts, vertical wind turbines can be scaled down significantly. They don’t have long “arms” that need to cover a wide span of airspace, but instead are designed to be tall and slim. This means they’re incredibly well-suited to smaller spaces, like residences or businesses.
