Now you can power electronic devices or charge batteries whenever you use water at home. That’s because the Vortical Tech Hybrid Tesla Turbine will convert the kinetic energy produced by water flow into electricity. So you can generate electricity whenever you take showers, water your lawn and flush.
Nikola Tesla considered the boundary layer turbine, which he first patented in 1913, one of his greatest inventions. Vortical Tech’s modified hybrid version seeks to incorporate the technology along with other innovations to benefit the large number of households and businesses that have running water around the world. Since many of these homes and businesses already utilize pressure reducing valves to regulate water pressure, the turbine can be incorporated to take over that function while also producing electricity.
The hybrid Tesla turbine by Clyde Igarashi and Jean Francois Roy can augment solar photovoltaic panels and battery storage systems to provide an alternative source of energy that isn’t reliant on the sun. While the 120 watts of power produced by the turbine is less than the 200 to 320 watts average produced by new solar panels on sunny days, the output roughly equates to between 2 to 6 PV panels on cloudy days (assuming 10 to 20% of rated capacity). Thus locations that don’t get a lot of sun for long periods of time would benefit greatly from the hybrid Tesla turbine. Vortical Tech seeks to ensure that the future of alternative energy is bright even when clouds appear on the horizon.
