The SWIFT Wind Turbine is a structure or pole-mountable wind turbine that generates electricity by harnessing the power of the wind. With unique, patented technologies the SWIFT provides unprecedented safe, efficient, and near silent operation.
The team of engineers behind SWIFT has a passion about providing safe, clean energy for everyone. The emphasis of the SWIFT design has been focused on safety, reliability, and ease of operation, alongside the high-performance of this innovative system. Unique technologies led to the filing of five international patents, which allow the SWIFT Wind Turbine to offer:
A structure-mounted SWIFT turbine is mounted on an aluminum mast with a minimum blade-roof clearance of approximately two feet. It is optimally mounted at the highest point of a roof, in a position which benefits from maximum prevailing wind, but it will work effectively in almost any location. SWIFT is designed to be both aesthetically pleasing and quiet.
To ensure minimal transmission of oscillations from turbine to building, the SWIFT Wind Turbine mounting brackets incorporate a damping system, specifically designed to absorb a wide range of frequencies. The patented ring diffuser, connecting the blades, minimizes turbine noise by preventing the creation of turbulent vortices at the blade tip. In addition, the five-bladed design allows for a slower speed of rotation to further reduce noise, making the SWIFT Wind Turbine one of the quietest wind systems. Now you can have clean, quiet energy generated right from your rooftop.
Design enables use of turbine in urban and suburban settings
Quiet mast mounting technology reduces unwanted vibration to building/home
SWIFT Wind Turbine is a grid connected system, utilizing the electricity generated by the turbine first and supplementing the rest of your needs with your conventional utility
Simple installation and autonomous operation
