HelixWind (OTCBB:CVAC) is a green startup founded in 2006 by my friend Ken Morgan. They make a Savonius-type vertical-axis wind turbine that comes in 2kw and 5kw versions. It’s small and inexpensive, intended for the microwind market (residential end users, commercial facilities, property developers, etc.). It’s a very cool piece of green tech. Not to mention, gorgeous.

HelixWind at Burning Man
The first two HelixWind prototype turbines made their debut at Burning Man 2007, prominently displayed near the man. Their performance was excellent, particularly during one of the intense dust storms.
