WindPax is a small scale wind turbine company that specializes in portable collapsing power generating/power storage wind turbine devices. Stemming from a rich history of research and development in wind turbine technologies, WindPax was started at West Virginia University to provide access to wind power for everyone. We here at WindPax are looking to reach out and provide wind power to those with no grid access. This is a bottom up approach and can be used to help energy poverty in developing areas where it is too costly to implement standard energy grids.
Our mission is to provide innovative portable wind turbine technologies as renewable energy sources/storage devices to relieve the energy need in remote locations around the world.
