Alpha 311

What is the Alpha 311 turbine?

The Alpha 311 vertical axis wind turbine creates power where it’s needed most: locally.

Every road, bridge, building or tower can become a wind farm.

The Alpha 311 turbine is smaller, lighter and easier to install than traditional turbines.

The smaller size, lower weight and unique shaftless design means the Alpha 311 turbine can be installed almost anywhere.

The turbine is most efficient when placed next to a road or railway where it harvests airflow from passing vehicles and generates electricity even when the wind isn’t blowing.

A sophisticated sensor array collects localised atmospheric data.

One Alpha 311 turbine can generate as much energy as 215 square feet of solar panels when installed in the median of a highway.

How does it work?

Let’s look at the roadside application:

Our turbines are attached to existing lighting columns close to roads, where they can harvest the massive untapped energy produced by moving vehicles.

Think about the last time a car or truck rushed past you – we’re collecting that airflow.

Cars and trucks are going to be with us for a long time to come, so let’s make them work for the environment and for local communities.

Local energy production serves local demand and lowers transmission costs, which reduces costs for the end customer.
