Prostar Insurance

Well here’s an idea, yet its pretty self-explanatory if you take a look at the photos below. If only the Dutch knew about this 200 years ago they could have crushed grain 30% faster! Wind power in turbine form was first harnessed around 200BC with windmills grinding grain and pumping water in China and the Middle East, now it has the potential to be a major renewable energy source for much of the world. This simple modification directs more air to the turbine which is especially helpful during periods of low winds.

They claim 30-150% increase in power output depending on wind speed.

Editor note: My assesment  is the wind/power has an inverse quality, the lower the natural winds, the more efficient the unit is. Very cool.
