WindBox - A wind of change - A small wind turbine that can be mounted all along the edge

WindBox enables to exploit the potential of wind energy production on roofs.

It is able to exploit the wind that goes up along the facades of buildings to recover a maximum of energy. Thanks to its modular characteristic, this solution enables the multiplication of production sources to obtain significant electrical production, quite comparable to that of photovoltaic solar panels. A WindBox can produce as much electrical energy as ten square metres of solar panels and can complement them. Quick and easy to install, it is designed and fixed to limit its noise disturbances and vibrations.
