Eastern Wind Power, Inc. (EWP), based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, has designed, built and tested a Sky Farm™ 50 kW Vertical Axis Wind Turbine (VAWT) to be roof mounted on high-rise buildings, or pole mounted in open, high wind areas. We have joint ventured with Siemens Industry, Inc. which has developed our generator and inverter system.
As of September 2011, our full-scale prototype Sky Farm™ 50 kW is NSTAR grid connected, producing power, and undergoing certification at the Martha’s Vineyard Airport in Edgartown, Massachusetts. Our blade is being tested with 3M and DuPont coatings for icing conditions on top of Mt. Washington, NH through the courtesy of the Mt. Washington State Park.
