As India strides towards a future powered by clean, renewable energy, two brothers from Kerala are working overtime to include the common man in this ambitious endeavour.
Arun and Anoop George have invented a low-cost wind turbine that will make renewable energy accessible to the common man.

Their small wind turbine is approximately the size of a ceiling fan. The turbine is expected to generate enough electricity to power an entire house! In addition to private residences, the small wind turbine can also be used to power commercial complexes and electrify villages.

The brothers are launching their wind turbines under the banner of Avant Garde Innovation.
At present, most wind turbines are imported to India and cost consumers close to Rs. 2 lakh. Arun and Anoop’s invention, on the other hand, will cost around Rs. 50,000.
Arun George told The Quint, “This is the revolution we are trying to bring into the industry: making energy affordable for the common man.”
With an initial investment of Rs. 50,000, consumers get free electricity for the lifecycle of the wind turbine, which is expected to be twenty years.“That’s one of the big advantages to this,” Arun says.
While countries may launch several large-scale initiatives to harness the power of renewable energy, a greener tomorrow can only be achieved when this technology is made available to the common man. With individuals like Arun and Anoop George working to do so, a greener tomorrow may just be within our grasp.
