Pika Energy - On and Off-grid Wind Systems

GenPro is happy to announce a new partnership with Pika Energy of Portland, ME. Pika Energy is a NREL (National Renewable Energy Lab) backed company that has developed wind and wind/solar hybrid Home Energy Systems.

"With funding from the U.S. Department of Energy, NREL launched the Distributed Wind Turbine Competitiveness Improvement Project to help the US wind industry develop competitive, high-performance technologies needed to compete in the global distributed wind market, and to lower the levelized cost of energy (LCOE) so that it can compete with retail electricity rates. Pika Energy will upgrade its manufacturing processes for key nacelle components of the Pika T701 home wind turbine, including its innovative high-performance alternator, brake technology, and enclosures, and scale up additional components including the blades, inverter, and tower."

Pika's Home Wind Turbine allows consumers to produce their own supply of clean energy for their home or small business. Their intelligent energy network is designed to offer a cost-effective and effecient system for electricity production. Their innovations include:

  • Blade design that is aerodynamic, quiet, and attractive
  • Alternator design that is efficient, quiet, and makes optimum use of raw materials
  • Patent-pending safety brake that engages in case of a fault in the primary control
  • Separating the control function from the inverter function, and standardizing the interface between the turbine and inverter

For more information on whether wind energy production is right for your home or small business visit the Pika Energy FAQ page.
