    Posted: 01 August 2009 at 8:42pm


Ground based, wind energy extraction systems have reached their maximum capability. The limitations of current designs are: wind instability, high cost of installations, and small power output of a single unit. The wind energy industry needs of revolutionary ideas to increase the capabilities of wind installations. This article suggests a revolutionary innovation which produces a dramatic increase in power per unit and is independent of prevailing weather and at a lower cost per unit of energy extracted. The main innovation consists of large free-flying air rotors positioned at high altitude for power and air stream stability, and an energy cable transmission system between the air rotor and a ground based electric generator. The air rotor system flies at high altitude up to 14 km. A stability and control is provided and systems enable the changing of altitude.

This article includes six examples having a high unit power output (up to 100 MW). The proposed examples provide the following main advantages: 1. Large power production capacity per unit пїЅ up to 5,000-10,000 times more than conventional ground-based rotor designs; 2. The rotor operates at high altitude of 1-14 km, where the wind flow is strong and steady; 3. Installation cost per unit energy is low. 4. The installation is environmentally friendly (no propeller noise).

Capitalization Requirements:

The company is flexible can be structured as a Partnership, Limited Partnership, C Corporation, LLC or LLP to accommodate the investors' goals and tax position. Initially, a Limited Partnership will be structured in order to avoid double taxation and to allow return capital to investors.

The company (partnership) requires $2,040,000 in startup and operating capital that can be invested in phases and will be used as follows:

Venture Financing $2,040,000
Development $990,000
Installation $250,000
Office $100,000
Marketing $200,000
Seed Funding $300,000
Reserves $200,000

There is a Proposal, a Patent and Business Plan for Startup Business.
