Technology Collaborative Tests Multi-Axis Wind Turbine

[RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Technology has to be tested before it hits the commercial market, and a multiple turbine design by Mass Megawatts Wind Power has completed its quality control review at a wind energy project in Blandford, Massachusetts. Western Mass Electric and the Massachusetts Technology Collaborative are working to complete the interconnection of the 20 kW wind system that stands 72 feet tall. Mass Megawatts Wind Power develops, builds, and operates wind energy power plants capitalizing on the Multi-Axis Turbosystem (MAT). According to the company, the MAT technology allows production of electricity at less than 2.5 cents per kWh in high wind areas of at least 16 miles per hour average annual wind speed recorded 100 feet above the ground.
