The wind turbines we see around us are permanently built into the ground. But the Portable Power Center (PPC) by Uprise Energy is trying to develop an adaptable and portable Wind Turbine along with power solution that can fold itself and fit inside a standard shipping container and be pulled by truck.

San Diego-based Uprise Energy is developing this Portable Wind Turbine. Each of the turbine blades are 21 ft (6.5 meters) long. The turbine can generate 50kW of electricity. When the blades of the turbine are fully stretched, the height of this portable turbine machine becomes approximate 80 ft (24 meters) and its weight becomes roughly 12,000 pounds (5,300 kg).

PPC’s on-board camera can calculate the local weather patterns and the Energy Conversion System (ECS) of the wind turbine automatically adjusts itself to capture winds as much as possible. And for capturing winds, the turbine can rotate itself at 360 degree angles when necessary. At that time, ECS adjusts the pitch of the blades and their speed. If the speed of incoming winds is strong enough to damage the blades, at then the rotor of the machine will stop moving and lay its mast down. That’s not all. The ECS can store additional energy. When the wind is low, using that stored energy, the turbine can provide constant supply of power. Have a look at the animated video below :

However, each turbine is able to provide electricity to 15 homes (average) of U.S. if the machine sees an average wind speed of 12 mph (20 km/h). If the wind blows at 20 mph (32 km/h), the turbine can provide electricity up to 71 homes. In less than two hours, the machine can generate 50,000 watts of electricity. It costs only $0.10 to generate 1 kilowatt electricity per hour.

At present, the Portable 50kW Wind Turbine is in its developmental stage. But when it’ll be available, its price would be around US$240,000.
