Brothers, Arun and Anoop George, are busy inspecting their proud creation; a small wind turbine priced at an affordable cost of around $750 USD (Rs 50,000 approximately). Measuring the size of a ceiling fan and priced a little more than the latest Apple iPhone, this wind turbine can generate three to five kilowatt hours of electricity daily - enough to power a home.

Arun says he plans to introduce the wind turbine to the market for a little more than $750 USD, a price he claims will make it more affordable to Indian consumers whose only other option is imports, which sometimes cost over $3,000 USD (Rs 2 Lakh approximately).

One of the biggest players in the wind energy market, India is rapidly increasing its wind energy capacity, backed by a huge 4,671 miles coastline and high wind density on its western coast, according to clean energy research firm, Energy Alternatives India.

According to the Global Wind Energy Council, India ranks fourth in terms of global installed wind power capacity, after China, the US, and Germany.
