windmill-newUse of wind mill is one of the oldest methods of harnessing energy from wind to pump water. However, majority of the windmills available in the market are Aerodynamic windmills. These types of windmills require high cut-in speed (minimum wind speed requires for starting is about 5 to 7 km/hr) and this is a major limitations for majority of the Indian geographical area except coastal area. They also require high maintenance and are very expensive.

This windmill has unique design. It is working on aerodynamic principle but it is a Drag Type low height windmill for lifting ground water. It starts at very low wind speed (i.e. about 8 to 10 km/ hr), very easy to use and maintain and cheap compared to conventional windmill.
