- WIND TURBINE:
Wind Turbines (HAWT) have the main rotor shaft
and electrical generator at the top of a tower, and must be
pointed into the wind. Small turbines are pointed by a simple
wind vane, while large turbines generally use a wind sensor
coupled with a servo motor. Most have a gearbox, which turns
the slow rotation of the blades into a quicker rotation that
is more suitable to drive an electrical generator.
machines have been built, despite the problem of turbulence (mast
wake), because they don't need an additional mechanism for keeping
them in line with the wind, and because in high winds the blades
can be allowed to bend which reduces their swept area and thus
their wind resistance. Since cyclic (that is repetitive) turbulence
may lead to fatigue failures most HAWTs are upwind machines. - CLICK

outages are becoming more frequent and lasting longer. This is a
fact. Causes range from an increase in severe weather to an overtaxed
power grid. In 2008, 25.8 million people were affected by outages,
many lasting for days, even weeks. Despite this data, only 2% of
households currently have a generator. This leaves a potential market
of 98% of households that have yet to install backup power.
continually invests a tremendous amount of resources to educate consumers
on the product benefits of automatic standby power. This investment,
in addition to ongoing increases in storm activity and grid failures,
has helped homeowners to understand the value of planning ahead before
trouble strikes. Odyssry offers hybrid solutions by offering LED
Lighting, to lessen the wattage usage to make better use of the power
provided by the generator. We also provide alternative heatuing sources
for use in conjunction with liquid propane or gas fired generators.

The PTE is
a pole top LED streetlight with a long life expectancy, specifically
designed for parking lots and roadways. Low energy consumption
and zero-maintenance advantages of the LED light engine provide
significant reductions in operational costs and greenhouse gas
emissions. The optical design eliminates glare and light trespass,
while providing superior pole to pole uniformity.
The JSB is
a medium sized, pole top LED area light designed specifically for
pathways, parks and pedestrian lighting. The LED light engine provides
significant savings in operating costs by reducing energy consumption
up to 75% and eliminating maintenance. The optical design reduces
glare and light trespass while providing superior pole to pole
uniformity. The JSB is
available in both Standard Output and High Output versions.
power (from the Greek roots geo, meaning earth, and thermos, meaning
heat) is power extracted from heat stored in the earth. This geothermal
energy originates from the original formation of the planet, from
radioactive decay of minerals, and from solar energy absorbed at
the surface. It has been used for space heating and bathing since
ancient roman times, but is now better known for generating electricity.
About 10 GW of geothermal electric capacity is installed around the
world as of 2007, generating 0.3% of global electricity demand. An
additional 28 GW of direct geothermal heating capacity is installed
for district heating, space heating, spas, industrial processes,
desalination and agricultural applications.
power is cost effective, reliable, and environmentally friendly,
but has previously been geographically limited to areas near tectonic
plate boundaries. Recent technological advances have dramatically
expanded the range and size of viable resources, especially for direct
applications such as home heating. Geothermal wells tend to release
greenhouse gases trapped deep within the earth, but these emissions
are much lower than those of conventional fossil fuels. As a result,
geothermal power has the potential to help mitigate global warming
if widely deployed instead of fossil fuels.
independent Engineering Design Consultant group, which provides CAD
services, drawings, and documentation for our projects. We assist

is electricity generated by hydropower, i.e., the production of power
through use of the gravitational force of falling or flowing water.
It is the most widely used form of renewable energy. Once a hydroelectric
complex is constructed, the project produces no direct waste, and
has a considerably lower output level of the greenhouse gas carbon
dioxide (CO2) than fossil fuel powered energy plants. Worldwide,
hydroelectricity supplied an estimated 816 GWe in 2005. This was
approximately 20% of the world's electricity, and accounted for about
88% of electricity from renewable sources.
solar technologies are employed to convert solar energy into usable
light, heat, cause air-movement for ventilation or cooling, or store
heat for future use. Active solar uses electrical or mechanical equipment,
such as pumps and fans, to increase the usable heat in a system.
Solar energy collection and utilization systems that do not use external
energy, like a solar chimney, are classified as passive solar technologies.
Solar technologies are means of using sunlight for useful energy
without use of active mechanical systems (as contrasted to active
solar). Such technologies convert sunlight into usable heat (water,
air, thermal mass), cause air-movement for ventilating, or future
use, with little use of other energy sources. A common example is
a solarium on the equator-side of a building. Passive cooling is
the use of the same design principles to reduce summer cooling requirements.
is a renewable energy source, biological material derived from living,
or recently living organisms, such as wood, waste, and alcohol fuels.
Biomass is commonly plant matter grown to generate electricity or
produce heat. For example, forest residues (such as dead trees, branches
and tree stumps), yard clippings and wood chips may be used as biofuel.
However, biomass also includes plant or animal matter used for production
of fibers or chemicals. Biomass may also include biodegradable wastes
that can be burnt as fuel. It excludes organic material such as fossil
fuel which has been transformed by geological processes into substances
such as coal or petroleum.
