Kliux Energies introduces its new small wind turbine: Kliux Zebra

The new Kliux Zebra vertical-axis wind turbine (VAWT) doubles the energy generated at lower wind speeds than previous model, while maintaining its ability to architecturally blend into urban environments

Kliux Energies remains at the forefront of technology and innovation in small wind energy. As a result of continuous R&D effort done by parent company Geolica Innovations, the Rioja-based company has modified the original configuration of the rotor in order to create a new, more economical and efficient product.

The new Kliux Zebra is available to the users since January 2014

New features and benefits of Kliux Zebra

The Kliux Zebra VAWT is ideal for both urban and residential environments as well as for isolated locations with not connected to the electricity grid. It can also be integrated with our Wind-Solar Hybrid Photovoltaic System.
