Renewable Energy Wind Turbines - Seeking Business Angel

    I had a friend who worked for a guy out west that had a turbine business. He made a fortune because he was the only within a three state radius that put up the wind turbines. So the technology is there, but if the company is real who knows.

    That sounds like a great product, if it works as described. Do you have a video of it working?

    Also, I think you need to have it patented ASAP.

    Although this may be a great product if it is real, now I have doubts on whether this is real company with real products.

    The website photos have all the "fins" at the same positions. For example, take a look at http://www.winggen.com/ravmi.htm.

    That pretty strange.

    If you can post a video of the working product, that will be more persuasive.

    Winggen, thank you for clarification.

    1. Please remove the photoshoped photos. They are so obviously fake that they will only make potential investors to have doubts.

    2. Post a video of it in operation on YouTube. You never know who will see it and what kind of oppotunities it may bring.

    3. The 300W and 1.5KW units you mentioned in your original post are not on your website. What are the sizes of them? Your 3KW unit will be too big to be used on the roofs in the city. As a potential customer myself (I have looked at solar panels to reduce our engergy bills), I am quite interested in knowing all the details of your offering.

    4. How fast does the tubine spin? Is it safe? You may need to offer a optional cage for the smaller models.

    5. Can they be daisychained? For example, it would make more sense for me to install several small ones on the roof than one huge one, because I don`t want neighbors to complain.

    6. US investors (or potential partners) would be demanding that you have US patent protection. Any plan to file US patent?

    Hi - WingGen is a real company. All images of turbines on the site are graphically altered as international patents have not been finalised. It is in our own interest to protect such technology I`m sure you would agree!!!...

    PS and it does work as described!

    laurence,

    thanks for inquiring with our community about your south african project. as our network of contacts is fairly extensive, i`ve forwarded a link to your posting to a super-successful entrepreneur (once named the "Illinois Entrepreneur of the Year") who is involved in the wind energy business on a global scale.

    he has your information and hopefully will respond soon!

    best of luck. seems as though your innovation is highly relevant in this day and age.

    best,

    rich

    no, laurence, vincent is simply a helpful community member here at StartupNation who was trying to take his own initiative to provide assistance.

    separately, i`ve forwarded a link to your information to another resource for this, Morse Energy, the owner of which is a personal contact. they`re already doing business internationally and might be a) a good candidate, or b) helpful in networking

    laurence,

    just got the update from the people at morse energy. they`re doing some HUGE deal right now that`s keeping them very distracted. so i have good and bad news as follows:

    good news - they think you`ve developed something that on the surface has a lot of merit

    bad news - they can`t apply any resources to it right now

    i am not sure i have any other contacts but will certainly keep my eye out. if i were you, i would focus on digging up opportunities in US states where alternative energy is a priority. that would include michigan and california, for starters... start googling!!!

    Greetings,
    We have a patent to generate electricity from wind. The system consists of a wind turbine driving an air pump, collecting the air in a piping network and feeding it to the air inlet of a turbine, add fuel as needed and generate power independant of wind speed.  For details visit www.renewableenergypumps.com
    Kindly express your interest in the system and the mode of cooperation.

    Best regards
