Provide the house with electricity: presented silent "balcony" wind generator /></p>
<p>According to the manufacturer, five units from the Airiva company can fully cover the consumption of the average American household.</p>
<p>The American company Airiva has created a silent wind fence of eight modular vertical Airiva wind turbines, which can generate about 2,200 kilowatts of electricity per year. Interesting Engineering portal writes about it.</p>
<p>New York-based designer Joe Duce has reportedly researched the distributed energy market and found that there are very few good options in the field of wind power. Many manufacturers produce larger turbines every year for large facilities, but they cannot be used on roofs, gardens and balconies, as is done with solar panels. This prompted Joe Duce to develop his own portable wind generator that would be both efficient and aesthetically pleasing.</p>
<p>Together with energy expert Jeff Stone, the designer founded Airiva. Over the past two years, the designer developed and tested the concept several times, and most of the changes affected the shape and size of the blades. Team members tested 16 vertical turbine blade designs and selected three final versions that were tested in the wind tunnel. As a result, the company is convinced that the helical structure of the turbine blades is the most efficient.</p>
<p>Airiva claims to have made good progress in how to get the most out of the simultaneous operation of multiple blade servers. Thus, a standard installation consisting of eight spiral blades can generate about 2,200 kilowatts of energy per year. Five such installations can fully provide electricity for an average American household. The size of the fences is approximately 4.2 meters by 2.1 meters.</p>
<p>The advantage of portable wind turbines, compared to large turbines, is that there is less energy loss during transmission, since the generation takes place close to the point of use. Airiva also plans to use 80 percent recycled materials in its production.</p>
<p>The company notes that the unit is not currently available for purchase by private customers. Pilot projects may appear later this year, and the first orders will arrive in 2025.</p>
