Global Development is an international organization that promotes alternate energy generation.
The manufacturing facility will be a 100,000 square foot green building and is expected to create approximately 300 jobs in New Mexico. The wind turbines use full-permanent magnets to nearly eliminate friction by floating the blades above the base.
According to developers, the technology is capable of scaling to massive sizes, with a proposed $53m turbine able to replace 1,000 traditional windmills and power approximately 750,000 homes.
Additional benefits include the ability to generate power with winds as slow as three miles per hour. The wind turbines have an estimated lifespan of 500 years.
