Eolewater- Windpower to produce water from humidity

KeithWHareKeithWHare Solar Expert Posts: 140 ✭✭✭
I tripped across a company that has designed a wind turbine that powers a dehumidifier in the wind turbine head with a goal of producing potable water from condensed humidity:

I think this designed to compete with desalinization units, not groundwater production.

In skimming the web site and video, I think the wind turbine is 30KW.

If there is sufficient wind and humidity do the numbers make sense on something like this?

    Certainly an interesting idea for places without access to water. Only thing is that it seems to me most such places also suffer from low humidity - - - - so the question remains - - how well can it work?

    Ask Luke's uncle Owen. The idea seemed to work on Tatooine.:D
