The Torque Wind Turbine reaches a high starting torque immediately at very low wind speeds. It produces a lot of energy from low wind speeds, and reacts instantly on wind gusts and wind direction changes. The output starts at 2 Beaufort, continues all the way through to high wind speeds with smooth balanced rotation. Energy production remains effective and efficient in inclement weather such as snow and rain storms. The output on an annual basis is superior to other wind turbine designs with average wind speeds below 4 Beaufort.
