SheerWind Reports Its Commercial-Grade Field Unit Significantly Outperforms Traditional Wind Generation and is Competitive with Natural Gas and Hydroelectric Generation

Field-testing of SheerWind INVELOX verifies generation cost at $10/MWH

MINNEAPOLIS--()--SheerWind, Inc., an innovator in high-performance, cost-efficient wind energy technology, announces initial field-testing results, which compares INVELOX commercial-grade wind energy generation with the same turbine on a traditional tower-mounted system. The test results indicate that INVELOX significantly outperforms the traditional turbine and is competitive with natural gas and hydroelectric generation by:

“Our ability to operate efficiently and effectively in areas never considered viable with traditional wind energy and at costs as low as $10 MWH makes SheerWind a true game-changer in electric power generation.”

  • Producing 600% more electrical energy (kWh)
  • Operating at wind speeds as low as 1 mile per hour and in low wind regimes (class 1 and 2)
  • Reducing installation capital cost to less that $750 per KW
  • Increasing energy production capacity to record high of 72%

“This exciting performance superiority over traditional wind and competitiveness with natural gas and hydroelectric generation is attracting significant interest from Fortune 500 and moderately sized companies; government entities; industry experts; and others,” states Dr. Daryoush Allaei, CEO of SheerWind, Inc. “Our ability to operate efficiently and effectively in areas never considered viable with traditional wind energy and at costs as low as $10 MWH makes SheerWind a true game-changer in electric power generation.”

SheerWind’s INVELOX wind energy system captures the breeze from an above ground portal and funnels the wind through a tapering passageway that naturally accelerates its flow. This kinetic energy drives the INVELOX generator that operates at ground level. INVELOX has the following advantages:

  • Costs less than 1 cent per KWH, making it competitive with natural gas and hydroelectric powered generation
  • Requires no government subsidies to be profitable
  • Reduces operating cost by 50% of current wind turbine technology
  • Minimizes environment, animal, bird and human impact
