Building a low-cost wind-turbine made out of wood is possible! Help us buidling and testing the first model in Madagascar, a country where 95% of the population lack access to electricity. The adapted plans will then be available for anyone, anywhere in the world. A first prototype has been build by students of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich. Today, they work with a Swiss-based NGO - CEAS. Together, we will set up the first wind turbine "made in Madagascar". But we want this low-cost wind-turbine to be available for anyone!
Built by local craftsmen, this wood-turbine is simple, strong and affordable. It will enable schools, hospitals and families to have access to a sustainable form of off-grid electricity.
Based on open source plans, this turbine will need material costing about 1500 Euros.
Do you want this prototype to become a reality? Jump in and together, we will generate clean, affordable energy for our children.
