Comments Off on Semtive’s Wind Turbines are Ideal Home-Scale Energy Generators

Argentine startup Semtive , a designer of wind turbines for urban and suburban areas, presents a sustainable energy generator for domestic use and humanitarian aid. Thanks to a vertical axis, low speed wind turbine, and a solar panel, this portable device can store up to 2500W of renewable energy ; enough to power a refrigerator for 24 hours, or several appliances simultaneously for 8 hours on a single charge. The generator weighs less than 75 kilograms (165 pounds), and produces no smoke or noise. Since it doesn’t require any kind of fuel and it is portable enough to fit in a car’s trunk, it’s a perfect alternative to bring energy to areas affected by natural disasters. These products are made of high quality materials, are easy to assemble and install, and are 95 percent recyclable. + Semtive Missing Attachment Missing Attachment Missing Attachment The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Glacier National Park , which was dedicated in 1910 , occupies a dramatically beautiful span of the Rocky Mountains at the Montana-Canadian border, which has been covered in ice since time immemorial. 150 thick glaciers were recorded when the park was dedicated, but scientists are warning that they’re all likely to disappear by 2030. Right now there are only 26 ice sheets left, so the park as already lost 124 glaciers, and they’re disappearing quickly.
