Well, the cost of an iPhone is definitely not on the lower side and a lot of things can be done with the cost of an iPhone. But, generating power to an entire house with a wind turbine for the same cost does sound like a good idea.
Indian startup Avant Garde Innovations has developed a low cost wind turbine that can generate 3-5 KW hours of electricity every day. The startup founded by the siblings Arun and Anoop George from Kerala developed a wind turbine that can provide electricity to power an entire house for a lifetime. It needs a one-time investment of US$750.
They wanted to eliminate the dependence and the energy poverty and create energy sufficiency for all the needy people. The startup has a ‘green’ heart and soul. The company aims to sell wind turbines at less than US$750 and it might decrease with the help of mass production.
