Urban Green Energy just announced the launch of “eddy,” a new small wind vertical axis wind turbine for home or office applications.  The sleek wind turbine, according to the company, is “whisper quiet,” starts turning in 8 mile per hour winds, and has a maximum safe wind speed of more than 120 miles per hour.


The 600 W small wind turbine has carbon fiber and fiberglass blades, weighs approximately 180 pounds, and measures 4’6″ wide by 5’3″ tall.  Eddy is available in white, titanium, graphite, and some custom colors.

Eddy sells for $3,879, not counting available incentives, while the tower, controller, and inverter will run a couple thousand more.  To make purchasing easy, Urban Green Energy has partnered with GE Money to provide deferred interest and low-interest financing options.

Urban Green Energy, headquartered in New York City, designed eddy to complement its other 1 kW and 4 kW vertical axis wind turbines.  The company manufactures these products in a new facility near the Port of Tianjin, China.
