D.C. Revolutions’ Wind Turbine Prototype Seeks Public Funding
When inspiration and innovation are held back by the lack of funding what can be done?
A company, D.C. Revolutions, has found an answer in creating a Crowdfunding Campaign in partnership with Indie GoGo.
Indie GoGo was established in 2008 and is available to help up-and-coming companies that present sustainable concepts that need financial support of the public to become implemented. These campaigns are crucial and the public should be involved because all sustainable issues should be a concern for everyone because they ultimately affect everyone.
D.C. Revolutions is a startup company in Palo Alto, CA and was founded by Durell Coleman, CEO in partnership with Dean Young, COO, and Matt Hart, Power System Integrator. They are focused on redesigning renewable energy starting with a vertical axis wind turbine. They state,
“Energy is one of the biggest challenges mankind faces. We’re designing a new style of wind turbine to help solve it,” and “We’re designing the next generation of renewable energy products to compete with conventional power sources.”
The turbine meets the team’s requirements of their focus on elegance, affordability and functionality. It is designed to enhance its surroundings, be affordable to the masses and that its full potential is met in its production of energy.
