Institutional Installation


Our installation at Genesee Community College in Batavia, New York.

Flexible and modular, FireflyPower wind turbines enable institutional electricity consumers to become renewable energy producers and generate site-specific clean electricity to save on operational costs while reducing their carbon footprint. Site-specific power generation reduces transmission losses and costs for the customer, with an estimated ROI of six to eight years.

Genesee Community College approached us after a previously installed turbine had failed and they were searching for a replacement option. There were also height installation restrictions due to the proximity of a local nearby airport. Our vertical-axis turbine was the perfect solution and is installed in a high wind zone on the Conable Technology Building.



We were excited to be invited to the 50th anniversary of GCC’s 2017 Fall Fest Homecoming celebrations. We enjoyed the opportunity to educate students and staff along with the attendees from the surrounding community about vertical axis turbines, carbon fiber blade manufacturing, and renewable energy!




The FireflyPower wind turbine combines advances in blade design and composite construction. The vertical-axis orientation features a patented blade design with peak aerodynamic efficiency in low wind speeds. The turbine system is modular, featuring DIY assembly and semi-portability.

Our turbines are:

  • Flexible, overcoming traditional siting restrictions, they can be installed in many locations and across a wider variety of wind classes.
  • Scalable, with 3KW turbine system projected to launch in 2018.
  • Low-profile and lightweight, requiring less square footage.
  • Cost effective: ZERO operation or maintenance costs. Developed with a modular DIY turbine assembly and few parts = less labor costs.
  • Recyclable, sustainable: 95% carbon fiber construction.
  • Durable: Estimated to have a lifespan of 25 yr+
  • Efficient: Unparalleled performance at low wind speeds and increased output across a wider range of wind classes: starts at 6.9 mph (3.1 m/s), lift at 7.1 mph (3.3 m/s).
