PowerPyramid and EnergyTower are unique hybrid micro power plants to generate clean energy from wind and sun all year round. It can be easily installed on the roofs of buildings such as houses, farms and offices, or placed free-standing. We mount multiple solar panels on a wooden frame, add a dual vertical axis wind turbine at the top and the controls and electronics below to ensure optimal power production when the sun is shining or the wind is blowing. The devices are characterized by low installation costs, high turbulence resistance, low costs and high robustness and effectiveness. According to the UN, more than 1.4 billion people still have no access to electricity: with the use of hybrid wind-solar small power plants, many of them can be supplied with sustainable, local and clean electricity
