Windbelt Devices

Inventor Shawn Frayne, young entrepreneur under the age of 30, has created a new idea or way to capture wind energy. His company Humdinger Wind Energy, based in Hawaii, creates and builds windbelt devices that harness wind moving across a tense membrane or belt. Essentially, a game changer that will pull in energy from the wind.

Frayne believes his devices will deliver power (excluding the installation costs) for $0.05 cents per kilowatt hours, about 1/3 of what Californians pay for electricity. Humdinger is in negotiations to license the technology to other companies for uses such as powering mobile phone towers, wireless routers, and maybe even delivering power to our current grid.

Another Hero Sustaino making incredible strides for our economy!
