Ecotricity is in the final testing stages of producing a new verticle axis wind turbine design that they claim may be 40% more efficient than similar sized microturbines on the market. This is good news for windy communities like Brighton & Hove where smaller turbines could meet local planning requirements. The Urbine is 15 meters tall, 6kW output turbine.
