Mass Megawatts Wind Power Inc. has announced that the cost of producing its wind power plants is declining with improved technology.

As a result, Mass Megawatts can compete more effectively with fossil fuels like oil and natural gas in high wind areas. The company is using less expensive mechanical parts after undergoing 18 months of outdoor testing.  On many occasions, the weather was very severe during the testing period. In another example of cost reduction the use of air flow acceleration techniques, normally not cost effective for wind power system, is being used to compete more effectively.  In order to be successful with the use of air flow acceleration techniques like diffusers and wind augmentation, Mass Megawatts’ wind power plants are being constructed to be strong enough for withstanding the long term wear and tear of turbulence related to diffuser airflow. Additionally, Mass Megawatts is using less expensive material with its diffusers in order to achieve cost reductions. In the past, engineering or cost related issues prevented the more common horizontal axis wind turbines from commercializing the use of diffusers.
