Colorado, NV, October 18, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Designed by Laura Sink while attending the Art Institute of Pittsburg, the Natura Levo (translated Nature Lift in Latin) is a vertical axis wind turbine with two non-traditional blades that catch the wind from any direction. Natura Levo is intended to raise awareness of natural clean energy while peacefully coexisting with its surroundings.
Designer Laura Sink announced today that “The technology will move to scale prototype testing and a short incubation period through a newly formed alliance with Renewable PowerTech Inc. (RPT).
“RPT has the experience in the VC arena and many exciting mixed-use developments they have designed to be energy independent, this will allow the technology to be implemented in large numbers and we will hit the ground running.”
RPT’s President Brian Mello expressed his excitement with the new wind technology, “Finally a small wind turbine technology that is quiet and pleasing to the eye; the market is wide open internationally, but we will introduce the technology on our Motorsports Country Club mixed-use developments initially in the US.”
The wind turbine design features a variable input electrical generator, matching wind speed with generating efficiency. “We have fourteen best-in-class technologies that take our developments into off- grid status; the missing link on the green generation side was small wind that people can live with. Natura Levo completes our hybrid generation platform. We intend to spec them in our designs which will result in several thousand installations.”
The wind turbines will also serve a secondary purpose as EV (electric vehicle) Charging Stations will be mounted to the base of the pole in the common areas, shopping centers and commercial buildings. The wind turbines will replenish the draw on the grid from electric vehicles and will be deployed throughout the country.
