• Architecture: Mostly Darrieus (up to 35% CoP Coefficient of Power) or Propeller (up to 45%)
• Very large market as well
• MW sizes are mostly existing Grid Connected Only
AquaGen: is SMALL SCALE FOCUS ONLY (starting at 2.4kWhours per day)
• Developing World Focus
• Designed to be light weight: one, two or four person carry
• AquaGen will use Darrieus and Propeller architectures (with patent pending technology add-ons)
• AquaGen River is designed to operate in very very slow water speeds
• Can be located in streams, rivers and at many coastal village world wide
(fishing villages on remote islands in developing world)
• Address’s a larger untapped market
• No Grid or Micro-Grid Only

Answer: The answer is NO, AquaGen does not compete against Wind and Solar technologies. Because Wind and Solar typically do not operate 24 hours a day x 7 days a week, we feel that AquaGen may be a better solution in some areas around the world. We feel AquaGen complements Wind and Solar and should be part of the overall solution when and where possible. An ideal solution will incorporate Solar, Wind, and battery backup solution.
15). Question: What is AquaGen's rated power outputs and frequency?
Answer: Everything depends on the on-shore inverter that is selected with the DynoRotor. AquaGen will offer inverters for 120 to 240 VAC (50 or 60Hz) and/or DC inverters that can handle 12, 24, 48 Volt DC configurations. DynoRotor’s initial product offering will be 500 watts, 120-240 VAC 50 or 60Hz. AquaGen’s may be combined with Battery Backup Power, Solar and Wind Power products.
