Wind Powered Charger

Using an electric car is really cool and now there is yet another reason to be uber-cool, as the world’s first wind powered electric vehicle charging station was installed successfully last month.

“Sanya Skypump” is a collaborative effort of Urban Green Energy and General Electric; it is the world’s first EV station which charges cars with the help of wind. Sanya Skypump uses the technology of both organizations – the vertical tower is from Urban Green Energy (UGE 4K) and EV charging technology is from General Electric. Together they form an all-in-one power generation and charging station.

The vertical axis turbine of Sanya Skypump requires at least wind of 8 MPH to generate power. “Since launching the Sanya Skypump we have received inquiries from companies around the world that are looking to embrace sustainability,” said Nick Blitterswyk CEO of UGE. “The Sanya Skypump is one of those rare products that enables institutions to demonstrate their commitment to the environment while providing a really useful service as well” he added.

This EV charging station is completely eco-friendly as it generates power from nature. Many such stations will be soon seen in parking lots and malls due to the increasing sales of electric vehicles compared to previous years.

This eco-friendly charging satiation can be taken to the next level by building a charging station on your own; this can reduce your monthly electricity bills largely.

Installing a Skypump in your backyard is not a rocket science. Urban Green Energy’s website states that the Sanya Skypump is designed in such a way that it can be assembled easily in just two hours. Installing and using your own charging station won’t take up much space because the turbine is vertical and slim. It is far better than using solar panels which require a large ground area and maintenance.

The first Skypump model has been installed by UGE Iberia, the Spanish Branch of New York-based UGE, and is located outside Cespa’s global headquarters near Barcelona.
