Lux Wind Power’s turbines are half the cost of other turbines because they do not require a central column, tower, struts, pitch system, and a yaw system. Also, the blades have a constant profile, which makes the manufacturing simple and inexpensive. The turbine is scalable to any size. In testing, the Institute of Aerospace Research in Canada used computer models scaled to 16 MW and encountered no problems. The life expectancy of the rotor is beyond 25 years.
