The Honeywell Wind Turbine is a gearless turbine that generates power from the blade tips rather than through a center shaft. By claiming to practically eliminate mechanical resistance and drag, the Honeywell Wind Turbine creates power (2000 kWh/yr) and operates in a greater range of wind speeds (2-45 mph) than traditional wind turbines.
The Honeywell Wind Turbine comes with a smart box, inverter and inter connect switch to wire the system into a household panel. It is designed to be installed where the power is being consumed and can produce 2000 kWh/yr. The system has a MSRP of $4,500.
Critics of the turbine suggest that it doesn’t produce nearly enough power to make a difference in the household of the average North American family.
