Kitemill’s solution consists of a kite connected by a tether to a ground based generator. Just like normal kites behave on windy days, the kites pull the tether from the winch generator at the ground station while it flies in a helical pattern in the wind direction.
needs less than 10% of the material usage of conventional wind turbines of same capacity
ensures stable energy output thanks to a high-capacity factor
unlock more potential wind sites thanks to harvesting wind at high altitudes
indicative twice the energy density per ground area of solar and five times of conventional wind
entails minimal interference in the surrounding environments both in construction, and operation
has less investment tied up to the site and can be relocated during its lifespan
is barely visible from the ground
