The Aeroleaf’s design allows it to capture wind from any direction, from gentle breezes to powerful gusts, producing maximum power in all weather conditions. Wind Tree can be planted anywhere; you can set it up right next to your company, in the middle of your garden, on the top of your roof, even in the heart of a busy city.
They don’t create any noise thanks to its direct drive mechanism that functions without belts or gears. It can withstand storms and lasts about 25 years. New World Wind also has a Wind Tree with Solar petals that takes the technology further according to your electrical needs and budget.
